is anyone able to id this plant which is in my neighbours garden. Thank you. 


this lead me to thinking is there a reliable app that anyone uses to identify plants. As much as I love asking you lovely bunch sometimes I don’t have time to come on and post the question. I just wondered if any of them are actually any good. 

Thank you.

    No flower = difficult ID !

    Pentaglottis ? Phlomis ?

    It is (almost...) certainly a Lamiaceae, I thought of an ornamental sage of some kind?

    Hello everyone 

    I was hoping  someone can identify 2 plants for me. The one above on the right and the other one with more photos. My mother and I attended Malvern flower show last year and were invited to take a cutting of a plant that was over 30 years old. , the one above on the left . The chap was giving a talk on succulents and invited people to take a very small piece of the plant it they so wished.I realise the clue is there regarding succulent but was hoping for a name  .Also, when we saw the plant it was all in one clump and was not like ours has turned out . We planted our little cuttings which resembled a pea shoot and now look at it . It is even thinking of flowering !

    Thank you for your help in this matter

    Picture no.2 is Aeonium haworthii (the shrubby one) !

    Apologies for the 'mix-up' image !!
