Plant I.D Help

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.

I'd like a plant like this...

How many million Knautia seedlings do you want? Spend as much time weeding them out as any weed.

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.

Looks like Feverfew to me too. Personally I prefer even one of my three day migraine attacks to the taste of it.

Sorry Edd, it is just that I have had Virus problems before from following links, so I tend not to do it and I know other folks feel the same way.

I actually caught the mole which was ruining my big central island bed, one down, three to go.

I always remove the old leaves about now, whether there are any new ones or not.

I would also check for aphids on your plants. Unusual, but this year is so mild that many of them have survived and started feeding early. They are the vectors for the Black Death.

I would not be in too big a hurry to destroy the plants, try giving them a good dose of fungicide first.

If it is the Black Death then the plants will die, eventually. But it is a fairly rare occurrence.

We have over 1,000 hellebore hybrids and not seen any signs of it in any of ours (Bows to Hubris).

And for those who do not follow links, William 111 is reputed to have died of illness after falling from his horse when it stumbled in a mole run.

They also have been known to kill kings!

Two Unknown Bushes

Wegeila, possibly versicolor and are the bottom two the same plant? The left looks like Lonicera ntitida in its 'golden' form and the right looks like either Euonymus or even a Hebe.
