Clematis flowers

Posted: 10/06/2017 at 15:10

Most people love the seed heads...it is another interest after the flowers have gone.

Clematis flowers

You may not have noticed them but your Clematis did flower at some stage.


No flowers... no seedheads.


You said earlier...."we got 1 or 2 flowers then these"

Is this a weed??

Posted: 10/06/2017 at 13:52

It is  Nandina domestica.


It would be helpful if you start a new thread for each query.

Euonymus with purple flowers?

Posted: 10/06/2017 at 08:54

Maybe someone here can advice you about adding pics.


Does you shrub have leaves that are opposite? see link.


If the leaves are alternate you can rule out Euonymus.

Euonymus with purple flowers?

Euonymus atropurpurea? Not vivid purple more red to my eye.


Please can you add a pic to this thread.

Euonymus flowers have 4 petal ....really tiny...completely missable.


It is the seed capsules that are fabulous.

Acer

Wind can also do a lot of damage to Acer.


Especially if they are in pots/or newly planted and stressed.


Sheltered, shade/semi shade is best.

Tree identity please

Aesculus sp.


To be that old and be so small, dense and leafy  it must have been pruned.


Is someone pruning it?


That would remove flowering shoots for the following spring.
