Re: Can anyone identify these 2 plants ?

Message from Simon Hickmott

In forum: Identify a plant

These are both nightshades, although they are in no way related to each other, nor are they poisonous. On the left is Enchanter's Nightshade which is a troublesome plant related to Fuchsia and spreads by thin white rhizomes. The other is Bittersweet Nightshade, which is a potato relative and grows as a strong vine but is also capable of spreading underground.

Black spot on fuchsia/

Question from mrs finch

In forum: Pests and diseases

Hi, six fuchsia plants arrived through the post. Every one had black spots on the leaves. The new growth is quite spindly.. do they have some sort of disease or have they just not been looked after properly by the supplier.

That looks like Phygelius or Cape fuchsia (not a fuchsia!).

Looks a bit like Phygelius capensis or x rectus? They are suckering shrubs with long tubular flowers, known as Cape Fuchsia.

looks like Berberidopsis corallina, a climber ( I think evergreen) with drooping fuchsia-pink flowers. prefers shelter and some shade with moist but drained soil

But the second picture looks more like fuchsia = are the red flower buds on the shrub you are trying to identify?

Re: No leaves left on my fuchsia

Hi, Jill,
How long have you had the plant? What is your location? Can you post a photo? If you are in the UK, I doubt it's Elephant Hawk moth as they aren't typically active until mid- to late summer. Also, they rarely that much damage.

Planted trailing fuchsias; got this also!

Photo from Martina Myerscough

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, my buy thinks this is a weed... it’s quite lengthy, trailing almost, cuneate leaves which have a red tinge around the circumference, reddish stems and stalks. It appears to bearing tiny black seeds where I thought a flower might pop out!.
Help!

No leaves left on my fuchsia

Question from Jill M

In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

I have a hardy fuchsia called 'Avalanche' which is usually just that- an avalanche of flowers. This year all the leaves have been stripped from the whole plant over the course of a week. There is no sign of what is eating them but I have read about Elephant Hawk Moth caterpillars eating fuchsia leaves and I did see one of the moths a couple of years ago. Will the plant regrow after such complete defoliation? This year? Do the caterpillars only come out at night? I would hate to kill the caterpillars of such a magnificent moth but would also like to grow fuchsias. No other fuchsia in my garden is affected although 'Avalanche' is not very near any others. Any thoughts?

Re: Rare fuchsias

Message from Maurice Wilkins

In forum: Identify a plant

They're certainly not fuchsias! I thought at first they were astilbes, as there are several larger species not so commonly grown. I then though they might be Aruncus, but it seems not. The flattened leaf petiole is a bit of a mystery! Maybe some more pictures in a wee while might give up the secret!

Rare fuchsias

Question from D Jocelyn

In forum: Identify a plant

Bought some seeds off the internet which were advertised as rare fuchsias(6 colours). Plants don't look like fuchsias but we're identified by someone as astilbes. Beginning to doubt this as !eaves are getting quite large ,and are reddish underneath,much larger than astilbes I already have. Can anyone help.
