Quote wiki....


Mirabilis jalapa, the marvel of Peru or four o'clock flower, is the most commonly grown ... Flowers then produce a strong, sweet-smelling fragrance throughout the night, then close for good in the morning. New flowers open the following day.

Looks like Populus tremula...aspen.


Do the leaves rustel all the time?

Pick a leaf and roll the stalk between your finger.


If aspen it will not be round but flattened.

Tree identification an downsizing

Posted: 13/09/2017 at 16:12

It is Eucalyptus sp.


A fast growing tree that will get enormous .


Not a good tree for a small garden.


Be careful of any drain/water pipes in the area.


Unless you have a huge garden I would recommend cutting it down and killing the stump to prevent regrowth.

Identification needed

I believe it is more exciting than Hawthorn.


Spiraea x vanhouttei.
