can someone please help me id this plant
I think it might be a Pieris, but not sure which one. They like acid conditions and shade.
I wish everyone that wanted a plant ID would post such a good clear photo.
Cuttings I should think CG but I have no experience of these. My soil is about as alkaline as soil gets
another mystery plant, i have a few of these just popped up in my garden
Definitely a Snowdrop of sorts, but there are a lot of varieties and even a few species. Some of the G. nivalis types have a striped leaf, as do G. ewersii forms. Trouble is you need to see how the leaf comes out of the bulb, how it folds and then the flower and the markings to even try to id Snowdrops.
I'd agree.........the plant certainly looks like a Pieris of some form and the Snowdrop type flower certainly looks pretty similar to a couple I have flowering now.......unfortunately I don't know which sort it is
The Pieris For cuttings take a piece without flowers usually at the end of spring and put them round the the edge of a pot, in a peat mix (acid soil) i put quite a few in and i tuck the pots away somewhere in the garden and leave for a year some take some don't. also i cut the flowers of in early spring the new growth is pink and very pretty. I hope this helps.
The RHS Garden journal feature Galanthus, a couple of years ago. I'll try and find it for you. There are at least three different types. The earl winter type, followed by a slightly later flowering type. This is a much stronger plant and has a silvery-white centre vein down the leaf. The third type is an autumn flowering one. The bulbs increase rapidly and it's easy to divide the clumps. HOWEVER! carry out division whilst the leaves are still in tact and green. When buying Galanthus. Always buy 'in the green'. That is, only buy newly lifted bulbs that still have their leaves. Avoid allowing the bulbs to dry out. I hope this helps.
PS. Actually there is a book, recently published, that deals only with Snowdrops. It describes many different flowers. Some have green tips etc to the petals.
There are about 20 species of Galanthus. These have a fair number of sub-species and there are some wild occurrences of hybrids between species.
I found 450 named varieties of these before I got fed up counting.
Just a few of the many different types of snowdrops at Anglesey Abbey last weekend.
