Identification

Posted: 12/06/2017 at 18:23

Tilia sp...common name Lime.


The thin bit bseside the flowers is actually a bract rather than a flower.


Aphids love them. If you park your car under it it will get covered in  ".honey dew"..or aphid pooh.

It looks a good straight trunk.


But bear in mind that Cercidiphyllum  will becomes a large  tree.


It is very close to that wall.  Where are the roots going to go?


In the autumn it will turn a fab colour and it will smell of candy floss.

3 to identify please

Do please check at soil level regularly.


Virtually all twisted hazels are grafted on to the normal one.


Do as Dove advises.


see link for what to look for.

Please identify this flower

Do you have any keep gardeners on your island?


Maybe they imported the seeds or plants from the mainland.

Please identify this flower

Begonia sp.


Possibly Begonia semperflorens.


That is a worry if you have an allien sp which is invading your island.
