Makes sense. Thank you. Looks like this is not a forum for novice people like me. Any suggestions for a good android app that helps to recognise common garden plants? Not big fan of google apps though...
It is so much easier if you just post 3-4 plants at a time.
If there are problems /discussion with others over an id, long list of pics can get extremely messy /confusing as to which pic is being discussed.
Next up Chionodox
up...need clearer pic..Exochorda maybe.
One time a thread similar to this went on for page, after page, after page, with everyone having a say.
Then people would disagree .
Then which image everyone was talking about got confused and it ended up a complete mess.
I propose that there is something added at the top by the Moderators to suggest id's are limited to 3/4 per thread.
I also tend to have the attitude if the poster cannot be bothered to take clear images then why should I bother to try and help.
I also really like an appreciative thank you after spending time to help.

OK.....had my grumble.
I really hate masses of id's in one thread.
Normally ignore them, but yesterday I was bored so had a go!
Sorry..forgot to say..welcome to the forums!
Everyone here want to help and have a lot of knowledge.
To learn about plants takes time.. you will find it easier IF you take it gently and learn a few each day.
It usually helps to take at least 3 pics of each plant...
A general to show the whole plant
One to show the leaves clearly...especially to show whether opposite or alternate.
Another to show detail such as flowers, berries, seed pods.
By the way......Last pic.....The Pittosporum looks like..Pittosporum tenuifolium Irene Patterson.
Ligularia looks like Ligularia Britt Marie Crawford.
This is the perfect forum to start.
Gardening apps are not all they are cracked up to be.
Stick with it..but slowly/gently.
