Help identifying please?

Posted: 26/05/2013 at 20:28

Perhaps a bit more information then willie. Is that the fruit in the photo? When does it flower, what do the flowers look like. How big is the plant? Is it a shrub, perennial, annual? 

Where is it growing, dry soil, damp?shade?.

They'd probaly like to leave as well Vonmarr. You said they were half an inch long. That would be a very small hornet.

Any idea what these plants are?

aquilegia is columbine and it's quite likely. It's either that or thalictrum.

Can anyone identify?

i like the Bens. Especially the orange one.

Another plant identifier please....

I love it and it doesn't matter to me that it spreads. Can't remember the name of mine. Probably haven't got the original any more. I had one that was very white indeed, didn't look as though it had enough chlorophyll to survive and it didn't. 'Dawson's White' rings a bell but can't guarantee that. I've been pulling the massed stinging nettles from amongst them today. The other advantage over the forgetmenots is the lack of mildew.

Another plant identifier please....

But be careful. Which of these doesn't spread Bookertoo? Mine spread like mad and only some of them are variegated as you might expect. Probably too late for me to think about a non seeder.

however hard I look at these still don't look like wasps. maybe the camera angle but body looks too wide and wings the wrong shape and angle. I agree about letting them out.

I try and keep up with picking them off. I know what a lovely yellow colour the leaves go in autumn. Haven't seen those for a long time now
