Another Plant ID please.

The pink flower belongs to Himalayan Balsam. A rather invasive annual.

ID please

Changed my mind, it is a Chelone. Senior moment, as I was looking at Phyostegia in the garden just before I came on.

ID please

2nd is Physostegia virginiana, the Obedient plant, because the flowers stay where you move them to on the stem.

Cannot help on the first, don't do indoor plants.

 

Damsons?

Posted: 07/09/2015 at 13:51

They are either Bullace (wild plums) or as you think Damsons. Some of the Bullace are nice enough to eat, bit others are incredibly sour. Damsons are tart. No fruit I can think of in Britain matches your description which is   toxic.

Leaf Question

Posted: 06/09/2015 at 21:21

There have been a lot of shrubs with chlorotic leaves like this, this year. We have had in on Honeysuckles, Viburnum, Roses and different types of Budlejas too. We think it was as a result of the very changeable temperatures and varying amounts of rain in early Spring. Many of our shrubs have now got proper green leaves and many of the yellow ones have fallen over the Summer.

I think with a little luck, they will all recover next year.

What causes rust on plants

It is a  fungus, so theoretically any fungicide should deal with it. Damp airless conditions tend to help it develop, so getting good airflow round plants does help......a little.

The Rowan is one called Pink Pagoda. Though I think the one in the pictures may well be a self seeded one from the original. We also have white, red, yellow and copper coloured berried forms too.

Take a September stroll with me.

The first picture is of Gemma. I found her abandoned down our lane when she was about 5 weeks old.
