I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather. Let's hope it continues.
I am in a new garden this spring and there are some weird and wonderful plants around that I am not familiar with (some I think might actually be weeds, but not sure).
Can you help? Photos are below.
1) I was about to pull this out, because I think it's a weed -but want to double check!
2) Again, possible weed?
3) Not sure about this one
4) This is a fairly small plant sprouting up near a west-facing border
5) This plant has popped up ALL OVER the garden, so hopefully it's a nice one.
no 4 is a Sedum.
no.5 is a Hemerocallis (Daylily)
1 is oriental poppy
3 is hollyhock
I is an oriental poppy
2 is Honesty (lunaria annua)
4 is Sedum spectabile (sometimes known as Ice plant - but there are several plants known by this name)
5 is Hemerocallis (day lily)
My first thoughts of no 1 were of a poppy, no 3 hollyhock, no 4 maybe a sedum. The 5th one does look like a day lily to me as well
well done Dove, as ever. I knew I recognised No 2 , but just couldn't bring it to mind.
I agree with Dove. All lovely plants.
Thanks everyone - that was super quick and there is no way I would have been able to work that out myself! You are the best!
Looks like the Hollyhock is suffering from rust.
i have a Hollyhock how do you cure rust or do i just dig it up and buy a new one
Gosh that was quick! I saw the photos, had my answers all ready, wound down and there was Dove's post with my answers!
