      Hi @martin-f do you have any better images of the main stem? I wondered if it was square in section eg salvia or similar

          Hi Martin, they look like Verbena Bonariensis to me. Do you have this already as they do self-seed a lot.

                Thanks Caroline, yes i will be able to find homes for a few of them i am sure next door will take a few of my hands,

                I moved it down by the pond early this year, one thing i didn't consider if any part of the plants is poisonous to fish i best have a read up about that thanks again.
