A few mystery plants that need identifying

Posted: 04/07/2015 at 20:54

I grew an echium from seed years ago that looked very much like No 3 - the bees loved it - really can't remember what it was called tho - all I know is that it was an echium

What's this?

Looks like one from here

What is this please?

Picture 2 is Philadelphus coronarius.   I think you`ll find Belle etoile has a purple tinge in the centre.        ...

You're absolutely right of course - so it does - it's a long while since I've seen one that I knew for sure was Belle Etoile

Hanging a Horseshoe

Yes, in East Anglia they always hang with the open bit at the bottom so the devil doesn't sit in it - or you get two and interlock them

What is this please?

Looks like a Philadephus to me too - possibly Belle Etoile.

According to this site

gardenias are toxic to cats and dogs, horses and guinea pigs.

Hope that's helpful.
