Which Clematis

Posted: 17/06/2015 at 20:00

I can't even think of a rose that flowers that early! What is it?

ID please - is this Toothwort?

I agree, on looking again it is Yellow Bird's Nest. Although it does grow in Britain, I've never seen it.

It is Lathraea squamaria, I'm sure of it. This is some from my local wood.


another plant ID please...........

Definitely a tree seedling or sucker, possibly a cherry? 

That's Greater Celandine, not Lesser, by the way 

Weed or Plant ?

It is rather invasive and has taken over road verges in many places. I wouldn't want it in my garden, but some people do like it. Pull it out if you don't want it either!

Any Ideas?

I think it's a Chenopodium too, although I wouldn't like to go to species from the photos.

Clematis cuttings

That's exactly what I did, Edd - must have found the same website! But they were too hot in the greenhouse and are now sad, dry brown crisps.

It's Field Horsetail, Equisetum arvense. It's hard to eradicate, the best way seems to be trampling well to bruise the foliage then applying a glyphosate-based weedkiller. No doubt you'll get lots more suggestions.

Stachys byzantina

The names are synonyms, Stachys byzantina is the current one. I love to touch the leaves, must show my granddaughter next week!

They've been living in my chimney for the last 3 years, no problem to me. The local bee-keepers weren't interested in trying to extract them, for some reason! There still seem to be plenty flying around the chimney, and the swarm in the tree has split into two and one lot has disappeared. So interesting to watch!
