This was a sunny evening at the end of June. The border was full of flowers and buzzing with bees. I was content. Then I visited Barnsdale!
Suddenly the busy border looked untidy and chaotic. The flowers were passed their best anyway so I chopped them back and dug them up.
I kept the Lupin and the Red Hot Poker but the Foxgloves, Aquilegia and Verbena filled the wheelbarrow. I will find nice new homes for them. You can see Fuscia, Dianthus, Heuchera, Lobelia and Busy Lizzie. I also planted Penstemon, Sweet William and Hollyhocks. I feel happier now I have some order!
I searched the internet and found it is a Rudbeckia Occidentalis 'Green Wizard'.
