ID on fragrant shrub please

Posted: 01/10/2016 at 00:57

Thanks for the ID, I've not heard of that one before. It's nice to have something smelly this time of year. I might get myself one for the front garden. Any idea if they can be kept small or it is just a matter of hacking it back every so often?


Cheers

ID on fragrant shrub please

Hi folks!


There's a very fragrant shrub at the local playground. It has been formed into a hedge by the council and doesn't look very interesting but it has a lovely scent. I noticed it the other day as I was cutting through the park. It has a lily type scent and has shiny leaves with raised specks on them. The flowers as you can see in the picture are small white bells and is flowering now.


Cheers

Who's appeared in the border this time?

Thanks. I have tree mallows growing in the back garden and it's not like them so I thought it might be a hollyhock or lavatera. Here's a pic of the buds.

Hi folks! Hope you're enjoying the lovely weather. Any ideas on this fellow? Seems to have a mallow shaped leaf but it's not anything I recognise.


Cheers

Ah thanks yous two! I've never heard of dodders before. They sound a bit nasty, I feel sorry for the plant underneath all that, shame as they look nice with their red stems and pink flowers.


Cheers again

Hi folks, any idea what this plant is? I found it in a walk along the coast on some sand dunes. It basically a big mass of tangled red stems with little knobbly bits on it (sorry to be technical lol). I've tried googling it but to no avail.

Thanks ladybird. I'll do a google on Dryopteris filix-mas and compare. I don't know how anyone can distinguish between native ferns! I love them but they all look the same to me lol.


Thanks plant pauper I think you're referring to my garden bench. If not then thanks anyway lol. It's a home-made jobby me and my old Pa made it last year out of tree support stakes. Didn't take too long and I think it looks good and rustic. Here's a better pic of it.

Hi


Just found a fern growing by the back of my greenhouse and moved it to another position. Has anyone any idea what type it is?


Cheers
