Well done Lynn.


I knew it wasn't Dahlia but was struggling to id it.


Bidens Bees Alive looks to be a good match.

Tree identification help needed

Posted: 24/05/2017 at 13:39

Thank you.


Yes...glands are there..all be it small.


You may be able to see them  more clearly once leaves fully open.


Definitely Ailanthus altissima.


Look out for suckers...often a long way away from the trunk.

It is a shrub..Cornus alba.

Sadly very different from  the Clematis virginiana...a climber with leaves in 3's!

Thalictrum Black Stocking is so named because the stems are black.

Please can you add to this thread.

When using Round Up please do not be tempted to put  it on as a  stronger solution.


Follow the manufacturers instructions to the letter.


We inherited knot weed and with Round up managed to eradicate it completely in just a couple of years.


...but that was years ago.


Maybe now knot weed is resistant ...


We used the Round Up sold to to farmers in large concentrated bottles.


Not  tiny spray bottles with it already diluted.


Maybe the chemicals aren't as powerful for amateur gardeners.
