More mystery plants!
Hi again everyone,
Thanks to those of you who helped me identify my Dog's Mercury/Comfrey problem last week. The offenders have now been cleared out and I know what to look for, and most of the plants they'd overgrown seem to have survived.
I've got a couple more mystery plants to identify. No flowers as yet but fingers crossed someone will know.
The first I'm hoping is one of the elusive poppies I planted but I'm not sure. The second is two plants growing closely together - they're both quite loose, grasslike structures (i.e. not standing upright very well, a clutch of thinner stems/vines together). Any help much appreciated.
Well, the first one is your elusive poppy
The second two ........ the one at the back looks a bit like Sanguisorba officinalis - Gt Burnet
and the one at the front looks like a legume of some sort, possibly a vetch of some sort - are the larger green structures seed pods or flower buds?
What does everyone else think?
Excellent, so at least one of those seeds made it!
Interesting, is Great Burnet a good or a bad thing? It's currently growing into a fairly bare patch of the bed so at least there's something there, but if it's another Dog's Mercury situation I'll take it up.
I think those are flower buds, or at least tightly-rolled larger leaves.
Gt Burnet is A Good Thing in my opinion - especially in wildlife gardens - it could do with some support - hazel twigs or the like - it can spread a bit if it's happy but shouldn't be too hard to keep in check.
Don't know about the other - hopefully you'll get some flowers soon and that will give us more clues ....
The tendrils and the manner of growth suggest leguminous plant but I don't recognise it.
Are the larger light green bits flowers, seeds or something else? I can't get a focus on those. Maybe a close up?
In the sticks near Peterborough
Here you go guys, bit more of close up although my camera struggled to focus. What I thought were flower buds do actually seem to be some sort of seed pod, a single seed in each one.
