Blue Magnolia

Posted: 17/06/2016 at 22:38

New one on me so I did a search. After a boutique and some holiday cottages I found Magnolia acuminata, aka cucumbertree (all one word). Don't know why it's called blue, the flowers are yellow/green. Is this the one Denise?

It's a big tree and trees have to mature before they flower

I've always regarded them as biennial. A bit like foxgloves, you might get a half-hearted attempt at a third year

I don't like it. It's a boring thing. Fine if you just want something covered and don't care what it looks like

Azalia covered in moss

Mosses might indicate an over-wet environment.

Lichen is harmless, seen much more now since the demise of coal fires and cleaner air, pruning for more air circulation might help with the moss. This has worked with a couple of shrubs here but not azaleas, they don't grow here.

Plant ID please!

I'd agree 

The description sounds like crocosmia but this isn't crocosmia

Irises all come up as a single spear, did they do that?

Can you do a photo?

your third pic is elder, Sambucus nigra

and the one after that looks like an achillea

Can anyone know or recognise the identity of this plant.
