Plant ID's please
Victoria Sponge Posts: 3,485
sorry to be a pain, but could I have ID's for these please - I want to buy some plants while an online offer is on and don't want to duplicate...
The middle one, not the veronica or the fleabane - below is flower head of same:
Thank you - and I am taking note of these ID's so I won't be asking the same next year
Pic 3 looks like a penstemon, but I'm very new to this identifying game so I might be wrong
That was quick! I do have penstemons in that area - I'll go and compare
Eek, I hope I'm right then
Vic I'm not good at this but 1st might be a cornflower. I know the 3rd one but brain dead soz. I will think.
You could be! I have one looks very similar and same size but doesn't have serrated leaves...do you think the flower head looks right for a penstemon?
I am withdrawing my suggestion Victoria Didn't realise flower head shot went with pic 3. Penstemon has bell like flowers. Soz.
Looks like I need to do more work on plant ids
I'm not sure about 1 Kef - I'm unfamiliar with cornflowers at best. It's not the wild floppy blue sort as I've just been out and compared.
Panda, if anyone needs to work on plant ID it's me since I planted the d#mn things...
This is flower head of 1:
1. either coreopsis or gallardia both have very similar foliage.
Best wait till they flower actually they will be in bloom soon.
You are right Dave- just didn't want to miss the offer this weekend. It's online too so images aren't best for comparing foliage.
You could also be correct Rebecca- I do have obedient plant - I thought I'd moved it elsewhere but I do get things mixed up...
Thank you all though
