What is it?

Question from Carol penn

In forum: Identify a plant

This is not uncommon but I can't find out what it is? A bird must have deposited the seed in our garden. Also it is a prolific grower...can I cut it back?

Can anyone identify this tree please?

Question from Ann Di Marco

In forum: Trees and shrubs

I live in Sw France and am trying to identify, and eventually buy, this tree as it has all-round interest.

It is flowering now and the photos were taken last night but the light is not very good. The leaves are like lilac. Flowers dark pink. Situated in full sun. I had to use the full zoom on the flowers which seem to be dark pink with a dark purple centre. This tree/shrub is about 3m high.

Can you help me name this shrub

Comment from Michael Flynn

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, I hope somebody can help me identify this evergreen shrub. It doesn't look too good as the flowering has finished but it is normally covered in the little pink flowers, there are a couple still visible at the bottom. It looks a bit leggy and woody now and I'm hoping I can find out how to prune it and then take care of it.

Thanks,
Michael

Gleditsia gall midge

Question from Anna Powell

In forum: Gall midges

I have two gleditsias, a 'Sunburst' and a 'Ruby Lace'. They are spoiled by gall midge every year, turning new growth into red blisters. Neither tree produces flowers in the spring. Spraying has had little effect, but perhaps I have not been ferocious enough with this - I can't reach the higher branches to spray them, and I am concerned whether the spraying may be harmful to birds. Glad of any suggestions.

Cyclamen hardy???

Question from Ian McGinley

In forum: General

I purchased several "hardy" cyclamen from a grower who advised me to deadhead right down at the corm level. I regret that I didn't ask why as seemingly severe as that.
Can anyone help me please?
