Couple of plants to ID please

GuybrushGuybrush Posts: 172




I got a couple of plants I'd like IDs on if possible. The first 'may' be a cutting I took on holiday on the south coast. If it's what I'm hoping, it was from a large treelike fuchsia. The other one I think must have self seeded or from a wildflower mix.

    the bottom one is Linaria purpurea

    the first does look like a fuchsia but they're not plants I know well

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    The first picture is a fuchsia  James - which should start to form buds if it hasn't already, personally I would nip out the ends of the plant to help it to bush up a bit. Sorry, I can't identify the second plant.

    Thanks you two. Looks like Linaria does like to pop up in random places so I guess it self seeded. Oh well it can live there, I need some filler plants for the bed. I'm glad the other one is a fuchsia, it was a cutting from a very impressive plant. I can't remember what colouring the flowers were though, I'll just have to wait and find out lol.
