Help with plant identification

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 07:11

Diabolo does have the white flowers, the reddish haze is there when the seedheads start to form. There's also a golden Physocarpus and one with brownish foliage which I don't like personally but hey, taste is a different matter. They all have white flowers.

Looks like Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diabolo' to me.

Lovely shrub and growing quite fast too!

Identify this? Plant with blue top and yellow orange flowers

When I try to enlarge the photo I only get some weird secret code. Am I doing something wrong?

Could someone help name this Shrub?

I think this is Solidago 'Golden Dwarf'

What are these?

After a second look at the photos I think the 2nd photo is Physostegia virginiana or Obedient plant. It flowers from August till November. That would also explain why the flower buds aren't showing yet.

I'm with Fairlea that this is Achillea ptarmica, though not a cultivated one. I think it's Sneezewort.

What are these?

Phlox paniculata flowers (in a normal season) roughly from mid July onwards till the end of September/October. Could be starting to flower two or three weeks later as this season certainly has not been normal at all.

What are these?

Second one lookes like Phlox paniculata.

What is this plant called?

You said that you took the photos in a water garden centre and that they where more pink than creamy white; I have a feeling that it might be Butomus umbellatus or Flowering Rush http://www.puddleplants.co.uk/Flowering-rush.html. Not sure though!

What is this?

Could this be some kind of fasciation, like in Veronicastrum virginicum 'Fasciation'?

help please

Defenitely chickweed. No need to worry. It's an annual and it's easily removed. If you happen to have some chooks, they love this weed. You will have to keep on top of it as this plant flowers and sets seed at the same time during it's growing season. Try to remove all the roots too as chickweed can overwinter.http://www.gardenorganic.org.uk/organicweeds/weed_information/weed.php?id=16
