Hi Peeps, help with the above please. Some of them are a bit skeletal but I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
1) looks like a Daphne, possibly Daphne odora Rebecca.
2) I would guess at a perennial oriental poppy of some kind.
3) might be Madonna lily - looks like the old flowering stems were recently cut.
4) possibly Shasta daisy?
5) is Musk Mallow I think (short lived perennial and they sprout from the base like that after cutting down.)
6), 7) & 8) a bit too blurred.
5 might be sidalcea ?
6 could be cotoneaster horiz. variegata?
8 might be marjoram ?
wouldn't stake my reputation on any of them to be honest.
1. don't know daphnes wellbut looks OK
2. agree with Bob
3. looks like a digitalis, maybe ferruginea or lutea
4. don't know
5. Yes, musk mallow or one of several similar species.
6 maybe a variegated Lonicera pileata, a clearer photo would help.
7, a clearer pic might do it
8. ditto, but could be oregano/marjoram, try it for smell
I know it's difficult at this time of year, the garden I'm working in hasn't been well maintained by the previous so called 'gardener'.
6 I managed to identify as a Lonicera. 8 isn't a herb, no smell at all, first thing I thought of as well, I think it's a salvia of some sort. 2 isn't a perennial poppy, there are actually two plants there, the one in the front is the mystery. Again maybe a salvia of some sort I know I've seen it before, but memory fails me.
I had thought of a Daphne, but it's in the wrong soil for it and it's not doing well, so thanks for the confirmation.
Thanks for the musk mallow, I had a suspicion, but wasn't a 100%.
4 is a very young shasta daisy of some sort, I realised after posting I'd done it by mistake, they are everywhere. self seeded of course.
7 is the real sticker for me, It's about 4-5ft tall and all that's distinctive is the seed head, first glance I thought acanthus, but it's not, but the seed head is similar. I may have to wait for next year now as they are all composting now!
Thanks for your efforts peeps, appreciate it.
I wondered if no. 2 could be betony (Stachys officinalis). I have some in my garden and the leaves are like that.
Could No.3 be a Michaelmas Daisy or even a campanula persicifolia? Two very different plants I know but leaves can be similar and it's hard to tell at the end of the growing season.
I would agree with 5 being a mallow. The ones after that are too out of focus.
1 is like my phlox - is it Nora Barlow?
2 looks just like my oriental poppies when they die down - or marguerites when they just coming up
could 3 be a pentstemon?
6 looks a bit like caryopteris - blue flowers?
and the last one marjoram
OK - probably not right, but it's often hard to tell from a photo
I don't know how I managed to pass 2 as an oriental poppy
Maybe you need to borrow my glasses Nut?
Maybe I need to go and pick up the ones specsavers have made for me Dove
Good idea - and I'd better stop wearing the ones that are four years old and get myself another appointment
