Could anyone help me with some names for the following plants please?


22/06/2013 at 20:20

well I have the white flower specimen but I have no idea what it is but is pretty.

22/06/2013 at 20:25

Second one looks like one of the saxifragas.

22/06/2013 at 20:46

could this be 3

it comes in pink as well

I think 2 is a saxifrage as Dove says and i've seen 1 on the alpine shelf at the GC but don't know its name

22/06/2013 at 20:47

I think the first two are saxifrage.


22/06/2013 at 20:47

Yes, number 2 is saxifraga umbrosa variegata, love it as the leaves are great to look at even when the flowers are gone

22/06/2013 at 20:48

Third one might be a sedum

22/06/2013 at 20:51

The 1st One has tiny purple flowers from now through the summer

The second one I agree looks like a Saxifrage

But the third once dies down in the winter an regrows like that in spring. It throws up a couple of short lived purplish flowers every now and again

22/06/2013 at 20:56

Sounds more likely to beSedum, quite a few die down in winter i believe from reading the blurb on mine.

I thought the first one looked white matt. Try mazus reptans if they're mauve. 

Still think the one in the pot is Oxalis adenophylla


22/06/2013 at 21:10

Yes it is Oxalis! Thanks for that one

But unfortunately The 1st one isnt Mazus

Thanks Fred#60 for identifying the Saxifrage too

That pic looks a lot closer there Nutcutlet, i retract previous guess!

22/06/2013 at 21:14

Agree Dove but there's so many varieties it would be impossible to tell which one!

22/06/2013 at 21:15

The flowers on the 1st one are ever so tiny with 4 petals in a sort of star shape. I had to cut it back as it was invading the slate and onto the other pots!

22/06/2013 at 21:41's difficult to see the flowers on no. 1 but what I can see looks lavender coloured rather than purple...

if the little star shaped flowers also have a yellow centre, then it's Houstonia caerulea, probably Millards variety...

22/06/2013 at 22:54

I thought the first one looks like thyme

23/06/2013 at 17:52

Its not Houstonia :P and Definitely not thyme :P

Anyone else have any ideas?

23/06/2013 at 18:35

....without a close up image of the leaves plus one of the flowers, I'm not having any more guesses.... you're asking too much really.... the photobucket image cannot be enlarged so we cannot zoom in on it...

23/06/2013 at 18:57

I'll try and get some better pics of it tomorrow with a close up of the flower
