    Triffid?

    More important than popularity - does it attract bees?

    not at the moment while it's next to the Philadelphus in full bloom! I think that might be like trying to sell apples to children when the ice cream van has just parked next door!

    one of those neighbours that keep inviting themselves round for coffee or a beer. It'll come through any open window; the bedroom, kitchen or dining room. It is very cute and very chatty. I once chased it out of the dining room when it climbed through the window (cat allergy) and it went into the kitchen where the wife was. She asked if the grumpy old man had been nasty and he replied "yaaaa!"

    Cats are opportunists par excellence. That will be cupboard love.
