White Lilac - do I need to lift it?

Posted: 02/08/2016 at 12:28

I think you'll have to lift it or the stems will rot. Do it when it's dormant and try and get as much root as possible.

Shrub ID please

Lycium barbarum, Goji berry, boxthorn. looks promising.

it means you're not using it fast enough andy

Most plants flower, it's how they reproduce. Without them there'd be no seeds next time

Shrub ID please

E. angustifolia, 4 petals, creamy yellow flowers, sorry

Shrub ID please

this plant has little 5 point star flowers. Google any teucrium and look at the shape of the flowers, very distinctive and nothing like the shrub shown.

As Teucrium fruticans, which this plant resembles superficially, is evergreen and thornless I think we have to discard that as an ID.

leaves are as important as flowers in ID Jane. Neither of the photos have enough of them

it looks a lot better when you thin it out doesn't it. There was a lot of dead stuff in the middle if ours which was spoiling the look.

I've just removed everything except the newest cans from a large patch. The leaves are just opening now. I like it. It had become very thick and now is see through.
