Plant ID (geum/buttercup)

Perhaps still a bit cool, although I would have thought you should have growth, mine have never seem to have died down completely. You could probably dig it up to see if it has rotted, I don't think it would be too late.

See that what happens when you go all natural planting, or not recognising a weed ????

you're right nutcutlet it is a hemerocallis, there is also poppy, japanese anemone, chives, lemon balm, a blue thistle like plant, alliums.

Am I right in thinking that the leaves that are showing in the photos as silvery white green, they are creeping buttercup?

What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: 09/05/2015 at 10:57


currently the star in my garden is  cytisus x spachianus (Easter broom). I don't know why it is called Easter broom, because it has flowers all year round, but now it is the most full. 


Plant ID please

Hi all 

please see pictures for plants ID, I bought geums last year and the year before they are planted in two areas and at my amazement I thought wow look at there growth but hang on they are mostly Mrs Bradshaw geums and one other yellow geum, so decided I would have a look through threads and then it came to me that it could be creeping buttercup. Please help.  

the first three pictures are from a different part of my garden, to me the first picture looks like it is a flowering stem of a geum (fingers crossed).


thanks all
