Plant ID Please :)

Not sure where my money would be in a contest between green alkanet and comphrey Dave

Plant ID Please :)

Looks like one of the comphreys

Can anyone tell me what type of plants these are?

Posted: 25/05/2015 at 19:57

Me too. 

There's a lot of yellow leaf about, do pieris and astilbe come in yellow or are they deprived of nutrition?

That looks a bit dead

I think I'd tackle the nursery you got them from

2litres is a good big pot full. If you teased out the roots and watered them in you should have had no problem.

I don't think you can post photos from a phone, some people use photo storage sites and a link

Need help indentifying two mat forming plants

Not my area of expertise

But you haven't got it too wet have you? Manyof that type of plant like it gritty and dry.

The top one has a sort of over-watered damp look.

The usual problem with these is too much growth. How big were they when you planted them (pot size)?

Rogue plant taking over garden!

I thinks a few more pics from different angles might help. and some more info.

what are the roots like? are they spreading out and growing by root or is it seeding everywhere and creating new plants. You can tell by digging one up. If you can dig one up it tells us a lot. If you have to dig some (as opposed to one) up, it's  a root spreader. An indication of size would help as well and any other features such as smell, hairyness. Anything really

I saw this one go by and I didn't immediately recognise it but expected that someone else would. Maybe everyone else thought the same

I haven't investigated closely but mine might be suckering. I'll have a proper look tomorrow
