There are loads of species and cultivars of spirea and I think you're right.

I won't make it. I knew the date had something on. I'm feeding tea and cake to the old motorcycle 'boys'

see you all at another bash

Is this an Escallonia?

Hi fidget, I just need to give it a squeeze then I'd know

Have you had a look at beginner 14's plant? It's too late, he's dug it up. But  I do like to know

Is this an Escallonia?

I think it's a fuchsia, maybe thymifolia or another similar species 

If you enlarge and look top right you can see a seed pod. 

Hard to tell in a photo but in reality fuchsia has a much softer look and feel than escallonia

If you don't like it dump it cotty. I've nurtured things I don't really like for daft reasons; they're rare,  a friend donated them,  I grew it from seed and it took  ages

I'm more ruthless now

Identify my plant please

Anyone addicted?

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 12:02

I don't think I'm addicted. Most of the time I've no idea what's going on

I like to look at pictures of plants and gardens and hear how people grow things.

I like to meet the members on trips and I like the seed and plant swap.

The rest is lost on me,  I live in my own private world. Never watchTV, maybe an occasional iplayer GW, and the rest of the world goes by. That'll do me

I think it's Artemisia absinthum, wormwood.

But if you think you grew it get a second opinion, there are many cultivated artemisias. It's a lovely specimen. I don't think it would be more of a seeding around problem than the cow parsley

Might be one of the artemesias. 

Can we have a look at a leaf

and is the a pungent smell to the leaves?
