Plant ID

Can anyone help me to identify the following plants please?imageimageimageimage The first yellow flowered plant was seen growing on the common, the second is a tall grass and is growing by the side of our pond, the third is a sweet pea that was growing in a field hedge but what type of s.p. is it? The last picture was a plant growing in a walled hedge.  Thank you.

    Number 1 I think is Coronilla glauca Number 2 No idea. Number 3 Everlasting Sweet pea Number 4 Looks like a Lobelia of some description?

    i think the yellow flowered one is Bird's Foot Trefoil.

    which leaves go with the mauve flower

    No 3 might be a sedge. does it have triangular stems and leaves that are in threes? Sorry I meant picture 2.

    if the grass is a garden plant it might be one of the Calamagrostis x acutiflora cultivars. It's got the f;lower shape and the uprightness.

    'Karl Foerster' or similar

    I wondered if No4 was a scaevola of some sort. They were popular hanging basket plants a few years ago

  • imageThis is the only other picture we took of no. 4 - it may help with identification. If not we could try another walk along that way to take more pictures in the next few days. I agree that the first picture does look like Birds foot trefoil which features in my wild flower booklet.

    I think Mobow is right, Scaevola aemula

  • I have just googled the name Scaevola aemula nutcutlet and Mowbow and the picture seems to fit in with the description. It was definitely a pink colour whereas some on the site looked more mauve but the leaves fitted the picture too - thanks for you all for giving me some names.
