Can anyone identify this plant I saw in Ireland? It was lovely, and good orange flowers are hard to find. I知 not sure if it is a shrub or a perennial.

G, I am intrigued too. Do you know what part of Ireland it was in? Maybe the area will help narrow it down.

Another site I frequent has a few people from Ireland. I'll post it there, and maybe we'll get a hit.

I'm thinking a type of Crocosmia with the flowers really blooming out.

It was in S E Ireland, near the ferry to England at a rest area.

One thing about the flower, if I can explain it to make sense, you know how a poinsettia or a euphorbia flower is like the uppermost leaves become the flower? Can you see in the photo how the lower petals of the flower look like half leaf, half flower? This was like that. It really reminded me of a poinsettia but the leaves were different and the flower head small.

It had a tube-like stem which was very sappy when I pinched a flower off.

Thanks for playing, but not crocosmia.

Gee, I took that as a cute reply and not at all snarky.

It's lovely and I've googled. No joy. It seems familiar in some way. Looking forward to someone solving the mystery!
