More Plants Identity

Posted: 29/07/2016 at 20:23

the trouble is  common names.

Your plant is Centranthus ruber, aka valerian.

There is also Valeriana officianalis, aka valerian

and a passion flower, I thinl that one is Passiflora caerulea

and a hebe.

and a penstemon

Plant ID app

I like the discussion that plant ID threads bring. If you used an app, you'd get an answer (right or wrong) but how would you know if it was really right or just something similar?
