Plants IDs please!

Yes, Jasminum beesiana?

Plants IDs please!

Don't think the first one is a wild flower, at least not one I've seen. The second one is Oxalis tetraphylla.

I did see this and agreed with Corncockle, but couldn't explain the white fluffy bits. The plant is very hairy, has something killed a bird and the feathers have been trapped on  the buds? Bit of a weak theory! Or are we being teased?

Plant ID please

No, that doesn't have toothed leaves. Thinking!

I'd love to come, always an exciting place to visit. Could do Thursday 19th in the afternoon, but not the Friday (going to Coton Manor, another great garden). The following weekend (21st/22nd) is also OK.

I'm told that the moth feeds mainly at night on plants such as Honeysuckle, taking the nectar as a source of sugars for energy. I'm learning such a lot from this topic!

Plant ID for wildflower

I think it is Ajuga reptans, Bugle. 

Welcome addition?

I think it's Salsify, Tragopogon porrifolius. Pretty flower, edible roots.

I've just looked up the Elephant Hawk-moth, and apparently the caterpillars love fuchsias. I'd rather grow fuchsias than Rosebay!

There's a white one that's not quite so invasive, Chamerion angustifolium 'Album'. You can get it from nurseries such as Crocus and many others. Please don't dig up plants from the wild, it's illegal. However, you could collect seed heads later in the year and sow them in your garden or in pots.
