In a Bunch on Monday

At last my garden has perked up and has some colour. I hurriedly put this bunch together to take to a friend

The white flowers are perennial stocks, they smell divine! Also cerinthe, quaking grass, purple loosestrife, persicaria and nigella.

This delightful fairy-like plant was in my friend’s garden

Do you know what it is?

Apparently it self seeds well and I will definitely be getting some seed later on

But neither of us know it’s name.

    I’m glad your “crew” helped you identify the mystery plant. Your little bouquet is charming. I love stock bit they’re so short-lived here that I haven’t even bothered planting any the last few years.

  3. Your mystery plant isTellima grandiflora and it does indeed seed around a bit! Your bunch of bits is so lovely – so much nicer to have a bunch picked from a garden than shop bought flowers

  4. Taking flowers to a friend and coming back with a plant, fair exchange, but friendship isn’t only about that.

  5. A mystery! Hope one of your blogging friends can identify the plant. Lovely to have flowers blooming in the garden, isn’t it? Even my gardens in the woods are looking very nice.

  6. Your flowers are wonderful. I’ve always loved stock. I can’t seem to get it grow in my garden. The cerinthe is lovely too.

  8. Is it a tiarella? very similar to heuchera but leaves less interesting.

  9. I can’t identify your plant but you have answered a question for me. The lovely, delicate grass with tiny,beetle-like beads I now know to be quaking grass so thank you for that. x

    • Excellent – glad to be of service!
      We call Quaking Grass ‘Whim Whams’ as that is what my friend (with the garden above) calls them, but I don’t know if that is a common name or not.
      I love it and it has seeded itself with gay abandon in my garden – easy to weed out though.

      • Plus, according to Wikipedia
        Common name includes quaking-grass, common quaking grass, cow-quake, didder, dithering-grass, dodder-grass, doddering dillies, doddle-grass, earthquakes, jiggle-joggles, jockey-grass, lady’s-hair, maidenhair-grass, pearl grass, quakers, quakers-and-shakers, shaking-grass, tottergrass, wag-wantons
        I’ve got to say – that last one is my favourite.

  10. Your mystery plant looks a lot like a heuchera. I’d have to Google to be sure as I’ve never seen one lying down and having a rest like yours is doing.
