HI
i have a question about plant zone and their tolerances to high temperatures and drought.there are some species such as Prunus 'Kanzan' , Prunus 'Sekiyama' or Malus 'JFS-KW5' - Royal Raindrops™, Prunus 'Kojo-no-mai'.as i know they are tolerant to zone 6.so my zone is between 7-8, with moderate winter and raining, but harsh summers about 40-42 deg.Are there any species fairly tolerant to these zone or not?

Does anybody recognise this plant which comes into beautiful flowers of white and mauve at this time of year? It is perennial and needs hardly any care.

Identify a plant or weed

Comment from KJB

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi can anyone please tell me what this plant/weed is? The seeds were very small black glossy and round. I bought them on ebay as lantana camera or acer but didn't label them. The plant looks like pokeweed but I am not sure? I have 3 of them in pots. Much help would be appreciated.

Can anyone identify this shrub

Comment from Identify a plant

In forum: Identify a plant

it has evergreen, waxy and slightly wavy, almost serrated leaves that are alternate on red stems with a light coloured under leaf. The plant in the picture is a good 2.5 m high and was planted in shady garden, it also has a tight cluster of flowers which are out now - early June - have a look at the photo and get back me if you have an idea

I thought it may be an elaeagnus but I cant find a match
