Plants to ID please!

Posted: 26/06/2015 at 12:25

I've got a little muddled with your pictues Rob and my comments relate to your picture number 4! That could possibly be Physostegia which was my instinctive response - but please don't quote me!!!! Once it does flower it may be easier to identify.

Sorry Rob but it looks too much like several plants and until flowers arrive it is difficult to identify it.

The pinky one is bistort (Persicaria bistorta). The 'pondy' ones are the tiny floating duckweed and the little reddish green leaves could be frogbit or a miniature waterlily and the green oval leaves look like water hawthorn.

I agree with Gardenmaiden. I'm sure it isn't Perovskia.

Harrod Horticultural used to sell them. Maybe you might be lucky on eBay???

What do I have?

No they are not always. Try googling Acer campestre and the leaves shown for the tree are amazingly similar to Len's tree

What do I have?

The acer could be Acer campestre - the field maple. All are really planted too close together. I'm not sure about the other two shrubs

Can you help me identify this plant/shrub

I think that the yellow flowered shrub in your first picture is one of the coronillas

Is this a posinous plant or is it a good looking weed

The plant is a Euphorbia (spurge) It is poisonous - then so are daffodil bulbs - and its milky sap or latex is a skin and eye irritant. Treated carefully it should be fine. Always wear gloves if you have to handle it at all.

Is it possible to take a close up picture of the leaves?
