Clematis Pruning and Groups - Your Help Please

Posted: 10/05/2015 at 16:47

Rule is simple, before June, don't prune.

Can you identify my magnolia

Bit pale for Yellow Bird.

There are a few Yellow Magnolias around. This pale one could be Elizabeth which was one of the first easily available ones about 20 years ago.

ID these two plants please

That particular Oxalis is not a thug like O. corniculata. It generally does not seed around.

The Geum could be one called Marmalade. That is a drooping headed orange flowered one.

Looks like rhubarb?

That does not work.

However there is a plant which has big red stems and leaves, Hog weed. Not the nasty Giant hogweed one, but a fairly common native plant used once upon a time to feed pigs, hence the name.

My soil must be fairly loose then, I find even the bigger ones come out easily. Still a nuisance though.

At least a decent weed killer will remove it. It also does not have persistent roots like couch grass. Mind we have not allowed it   to grow or flower here for 20 years and still we get seedlings coming up. There is none that we can see in the fields around us either. So be warned, do not let it flower.

The seed would have had to have been produced and grown a few years back for the plant to be flowering at the same size as the original.

Also, as I said, we have only got the dark blue of that one and another species which is lighter blue, but not white. Will be a heck of a job to separate out the different colours though, the clump is huge!

Yes, if there are no seeds on it. I find it actually pulls up quite easily.

That is a possibility, but rather odd that they should seed in the original clump and be the same size as the original bulb. Also not got any other paler ones in places where they have self seeded.
