I think that's the big one, Verbascum bombyciferum

I'm off into the undergrowth again any minute now.


I wonder what will have me today, the ants? the mozzies? horseflies? unidentified others? or just the nettles?

Can anyone identify this plant?

tbh I wouldn't have IDd that as mint even before the flowers. But I don't think I could have said what it was.

Can anyone identify this plant?

or any other sort of mint.


I think it might be one of the melittis that's been selected, bred up a bit and given a cultivar name. the flowers look over-large for the wild one

Shrub/Tree ID!

narrow compared to P. laurocerasus but not really narrow.


There are red tinges to the new stems but neither of these photos is clear enough to show that.


Pic 1. could be any white flowering tree.


ID based on


1.flowering now,


2.right flowers


3. a few leaves almost in focus (sorry stewyfizz)


I'm confident it's P. lusitanicus

Can anyone identify this plant?

I agree with Alan, Melittis.

Shrub/Tree ID!

You can hack that back hard, makes a good hedge. At Wimpole Estate (NT) not far from here,they have some trained to about 8 foot like lampshades or mushrooms on a clear stem. Not keen myself but the plants seem OK

A number of plants that need identifying.

could you do some more pics of that one including stems. Is it woody like a shrub or dying back to nothing in the winter?


I'd like to see what's under the leaves, how it grows out of the ground.


If it's a paeony it's not one I know but there is something paeony-like about it.
