Can anyone give me a definitive ID for these plants?


18/05/2013 at 12:50

They are growing upside down and mum has fallen off the bench

18/05/2013 at 13:15

please do them again, singly and right way up.

18/05/2013 at 13:19

the pink one is a berberis

18/05/2013 at 13:26

What Lyn says-this is just silly-sorry

18/05/2013 at 13:35

The yellow one could be a broom I guess.

Gravity has taken a turn for the worst where you live, so gardening will present many new and exciting opportunities.  Berbeiris, The reds shrub, will probably not mind as it is impervious to most ills, the yellow one is possiblyy kerria - a close up would help with identification, whichever way up it occurs.

Sorry but this wasn't put on upside down purposely. Unfortunately it happened and it was a genuine accident. Thanks for your help so far.

I agree the red looks like berberris.

The yellow one could be Batchelor's buttons - Kerria japonica. Can you take another picture a bit closer?

Hope mum is allright.Berberis and Broom (Cytisus praecox or kewensis).

18/05/2013 at 14:18

The one on the right is just too vague to be sure but I don't think it's a broom. The shape seems wrong. 

Splendid berberis. Wish mine was that big.

Thanks so much everyone. Sorry - I promise no upside down pics if avoidable in future. Kerria certainly looks likely. I have no access to a better  pic as this was sent to me.

If you find out the identity of the yellow shrub please let us know? I admit it , I'm horribly competitive!

18/05/2013 at 16:50

Berberis, as everyone says, and this is a pic of a kerria japonica so you can see what it's like.

Thank you. So sweet.

I gave you this one earlier on! At 13.37 - if it is in fact kerria

18/05/2013 at 17:45

I think you will find Bookertoo at 13.37 you said "possiblyy Kerria"

18/05/2013 at 18:09

Indded, the picture was a little unclear for my old eyes, but I still reckon it is kerria!!
