Sorry I am confused.

I am not sure what you mean.

1st link the leaves are not as open as yours.... it could be Syringa x persica... the photo bears no name.

The 2nd link you cannot even see any leaves?

3rd link is the same company I first used Perry hill... Syringa x persica. in my post at 14.38p.m

Plant ID please

I actually suggested this earlier but didn't think you had seen my post.


You can rule our  Syringa persica laciniata completely....

correctly called Syringa x laciniata

The leaf is very very different.

Laciniata means cut leaf.

Your lilac definitely does not have a cut leaf!

The internet is wonderful but not every picture on it is correctly labelled.

See this accurate pic of the leaves!....

QUOTE "The other possibility is S. pubescens microphylla Superba."


The leaves on  Syringa pubescens subsp microphylla Superba are a very different shape.

Native/traditional British plants for office plants?

Its not a question of Hardiness.

Plants that need it warm, frost free would maybe survive.

But to be happy they need sunshine/good light.


While plants that are happy in shade/low light  would be miserable in a dry warm office.

I agree with the comments posted above

Acer Beni Schichihenge problem?

Sorry that I cannot id your beetle... which has bands which run across the body.

However it is definitely not a vine weevil... which has banding running front to back.


any idea what it is

No plants should ever be taken from any nature reserve or nature trail and it is illegal for anyone, without permission of the owner or occupier of the land, to uproot any wild plant. A number of very rare plants in danger of extinction, or likely to become so, are specially protected by law, and removal or sale of any part of these plants is an offence. A person found guilty of breaking these laws may be fined up to £1,000, and if more than one plant is involved, this fine may be imposed for each of them. The Botanical Society of the British Isles lists species protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981.



Hope this helps.

Sorry but that is not a good idea trifid house.

1. it is illegal to dig up plants from the wild.

2. It can be an invasive pest in gardens.
