And what is this strange looking plant?
any idea what this is growing in my neighbours garden ? the fence is 6 ft high.
Money tree for visa applicants?
You know your rhubarb mate!
It’s a Triffid
Looks like a really tatty echium pininana.
Species within the genus?
I knew I was going to see wild rhubarb, but I had no idea it would look like that. It came across as rather unusual.
The answer is Tatton Park in Cheshire, not so far from Warrington.
You aren’t a gardener at Kew are you?
I am retired John however, the only schooling I ever actually had was floriculture and horticulture, three year course, had to memorise 50 Latin names each week in the last year as part of our plant-indent test on Fridays, I always had an interest in plants Kew is very close, I get in a few times a year.
The family used to go there when I was a kid.
I just remember how picturesque it was and that flowers were everywhere.
I had never been before even though I lived in Manchester for 20 years.
I dont think that is Chesil Beach. But dont know where it is though.
