plant identification

..that looks like Coronilla glauca, to me... have a look at that one...  it's in flower now...

the leaves on the Genista look a little different, but it's difficult to say without enlarging these images...

Plant of the Centenary

...yes of course it's a great plant, if a bit of a thug when it get's going, it can swamp plants nearby...

I wouldn't vote for it though due to the controversial legal situation that surrounded it a few years ago, when the breeder of a plant named 'Jolly Bee' was taken to court over plant breeders rights issues by those who bred 'Rozanne' , as Jolly Bee's DNA was found to be ''virtually the same'' as ''Rozanne'' which was bred earlier...'Jolly Bee' had to be withdrawn from sale as a result...

 I have both in my garden and to me they are different plants - growth wise, but the flowers are virtually the same...

I would vote for Rose 'Bonica'...

...such lovely grounds, I'm wondering if Fairygirl lived in a mansion...

 

Honeysuckle

..I've not grown that one, no... perhaps someone else has here... it looks very nice, a semi evergreen Japonica type... flowers fade to a creamy yellow I think, after starting out pink/white.... certainly makes a change from the usual 'Halliana' that belongs to this group..

...have a look at Myrtle 'Glanleam Gold', it might suit your purpose...

..thank you, we're getting there...

yes this is a lovely plant isn't it..? although the usual Brunnera is just as nice too...

I think I prefer these to forget me nots which seed all over the place, lovely as they are though...

I like this one - Lonicera 'Red Gables' but there are many others.  This flowers from midsummer onwards... it has scent in the evenings mostly... less during the day...

[can't post photo, sorry]...oh, here we go....

picture difficulties

You could upload pictures to an external site for example google picasa

here is an album i made earlier

https://picasaweb.google.com/107394024004215163133/Plants#

not great photo's but its easy to share. I usually link images from picasa  as it is fairly reliable about uploading.

 

I've got picasa too but didn't know you could link to it...  you've got lots of seedlings coming on there... keep you busy..

Clitoria Ternatea

..well, I've not heard of it before, don't know about anyone else, but it's an interesting plant isn't it? curiously named, - appropriate I suppose when you see what it looks like...

I wish you all success with it, and congratulations for getting the seeds to germinate, very exciting..!  I don't think one could grow this out of doors except in summer, like a Bougainvillea perhaps...
