wild flowers

There's an easy answer, just use the scientific name! These are specific so one name, one plant. You might have to look it up though, if you're not familiar with them. Vernacular names are interesting but give rise to many misunderstandings; there are no right or wrong names as others have said.

Nut and Bob, I don't agree about the colour of wild A. vulgaris, it is usually a deep, intense blue. These are in my garden, but they are the wild type.

Can anyone identify a seedling?

Well, I'm fairly sure it's a tree seedling, not sure which.

I don't think the lilac will be evergreen.

How about a small variegated holly?

Wildflower ID please

Ramsons, Allium ursinium. Very invasive in gardens, lovely in the wild.

weed or veg?

That looks like Ragwort, Senecio jacobea. Definitely don't eat it!

They don't take over though, they are light and airy and flower early. They are welcome wherever they want to seed in my garden.

Looks like a Spiraea. Not sure which one, there are a few with similar flowers.

Verdun, that rather depends on how big the bags are!

What is it?

Thanks, looks a nice little border. Foxglove is still the best bet, let's hope it puts up a flower spike soon!
