    I think wild rocket for GD's 3rd pic in first set too.

    The 4th one in GD's second set could be Delosperma (Trailing ice plant)? 

    My garden and I live in South Wales. 
  • Thank you Obelixx, Raisingirl, nutcutlet and AuntyRach for helping with my latest batch of plants to identify.  You have all been really helpful - it is great to be able to put a name to all these amazing plants that we either have in our garden or nearby.  We are so lucky to have such a wide selection of plants in one form or another virtually on our doorstep.

    A few years ago I took up again an old hobby of mine, identifying as many wild flowering plants as possible in my vicinity. I made a traditional herbarium (plural: herbaria) and an online one as well. See So far I have collected and identified 223 different species (out of about 400 that grow in my vicinity).

    A few weeks ago my wife took a couple of Delosperma (those pinkish/mauve flowers that you posted) from the pavement in our street and planted them out in our garden where they have not only flowered but grown a lot!

    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).
  • What a brilliant idea Papi Jo - it is amazing what is out there if only we could all take the time to look beyond the norm.  With our new camera and my now obsessive gardening interest we are finding plants that we would not have looked at twice before - now I just need to pass this passion on to our daughters and the following generations (still waiting). So do you have 223 different species growing in your garden Papi Jo?  I will take a look at your website later when I have more time to spare.

    I have to give credit to nutcutlet who has endured - along with other forum uses - my repeated requests for plant identifications - you have all been so helpful in satisfying my curiosity.
