Could you identify this dying berry bush/tree?

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 18:29

Hi Philippa, yes St Johns Wort was H. perfoliatum 

and Rose of Sharon was H calcyninum, the creepy invasive one.

Now both names seem to be used for anything in the genus. Or maybe it's just the sites I visit that don't know what's what.

I blame the likes of Wikipaedia

It feels very autumnal out there, especially first thing in the morning

Hack it right back before next spring, It improves the look 100%

That's Hypericum androsaemum, Known as St Johns Wort or Rose of Sharon now with every other hypericum.

How anyone knows which plant they're discussing is a mystery to me

 

Anyone able to ID this plant for me, please.

It looks like one of those sugar loaf chicories. But I don't think the wild chicory has leaves like that. Maybe in the first year though, someone will know

It would have to be the gardening clothes Philippa

I had a 'mother of the groom' situation earlier in the year and dressing up was torture, even the limited version I chose

Help with id please....

We're quick here.

A few more photos, the leave particularly, and lets us know how tall it is. Then we can probably say which malva. 

When it's all gone to seed, if you pull it and it comes out of the ground it's an annual. If it's firmly fixed it's perennial. Malva moschata will be very firmly fixed

Don't take any notice of me VS, all that stuff makes me cringe.

And the word 'celebrity' brings out the worst in me

Just ignore me
