Cherries that look like plums?

Posted: 16/08/2015 at 13:36

Years ago I had a tree I bought as Morus nigra, mulberry. I always had by doubts, it came into leaf too early and the leaves seemed the wrong shape. But I had never seen a mulberry except in books, (no interweb then), and thought I could trust the company that sent it. So I watched it grow to enormous height, sucker across the lawn and eventually produce white flowers and tiny, sharp, little cherries

A case of mistaken identity?

It's definitely not Passiflora caerulea

The leaves look more like plum than cherry. Also cherries are over, plums are coming on. What do they taste like?

To edge or not to edge ...?

You could go even more formal and exchange the blue flowers for something clipped to a shape that complements those half moons.

Don't fuss it up, you could end up with neither one thing nor the other. If you want more flowering plants take up all the grass and make generous flower beds. Be bold



Tree ID please

Seed and plant swap 2015

Charlie, I've grown various dicentra from seed but never tried D. spectablis. I've always cold germinated the ones I have done, sow when ripe, leave outside over winter.

I should have what was formerly called Dicentra macrocapnos seeds later (subject to setting seed, one plant has collapsed)  I'll post them on here if they come to fruition

Anyone ID this plant please?

Opinion will be divided re weed status

Any idea's as to what this is?
