Help!! Can anyone I.D this plant?

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 08:29

Mines also a vote for osteospermum, especially if the foliage has a strong smell.

Morning all, lovely bright sunshine out there this morning!

Must get out for a walk this morning - mistakenly booked all day off when I only need pm off for son's appt. What with bank hols as well this isn't going to be a good month for spending on plants, grrrr. No workie, no payie.


What are these I potted up?

Phlox thank you

No duetzia or cornus.

Have philadelphus but don't remember taking a cutting, will be nice if I did.

Vebena bon yes, but others are much bigger, think this was one of the mollycoddled ones.

one left - the long one with green stem, it's on the tip of my tongue - might begin with s or v. late ish flowering, about 60cm tall, pink or blue spikes of flowers, aghhh I'm sure it is, can't even find a photo from last year.

OOO really Nut? I do have some of those, wondered where they were!

Is the big one a salvia or a phlox or do I need to think some more?

And something that grows tall, pink fluffy flowers? One of the spindley ones.

Sprig's Garden

It all looks lovely Sprig and so well planned, you're obviously enjoying yourself as well. What else is as rewarding as the things we create and love. Hope you get time to sit and relax in your garden as well as all the work you put in.

Well, I got over my hunger pangs and have been playing out again.

Verdun's miscanthus is now in situ - although not where I thought it was going to go - my gardens a bit too flexible, or 'fluid' if I'm being fancy - anyway, I mean I change my mind a bit too often! Also had to move another grass to compliment it. Think it will look nice when everything is growing well in a few months. Working hard towards trying to get secret and hidden areas to some degree.

Only saying the other day - must try some pasque flowers.

Good luck with the wedding plant orchid, do you know which flowers she's having in her bouquet?

A couple of pics of the border I've been working on this morning (after sorting fence stuff out on the other side). planted out miscanthus (can't really see in these pics, still q small, it's to the side of the Tom Thumb) which got me to move another (?) grass so they are now staggered either side of new path. Planned where some perennials will go in the top section. Can't wait for the acer to get going and be partly hidden by lupins and grasses.
