It is a sweet looking thing. But it can be a bit of a thug. So if it comes up where you don't want it - pull it out when small. Overwhelmed my broad beans one year because I am too soft-hearted.

If the fruits turn bright red, it could be Sarcococca humilis - sweet box.

Hi Ewan some helpful replies from our followers again:

"Deutzia I can't remember other name."
"It is one of the Deutzias, methinks. There are umpteen hybrids in circulation, flowering at slightly different times in spring/summer and all slightly different shades of pink/rose."
"Possibly Deutzia ningpoensis or in the family. Definitely in the Family - Hydrangeaceae and Genus - Deutzia."
Hope that helps?

Re: Sweet pea or not?

Message from Carol

In forum: Identify a plant

It doesn't look like a sweet pea but would be easier to identify with a picture of it growing, as you say, along the ground.

First looks like Lonicera nitida. Third looks like sweet box - Sarcococca. More sure of Lonicera than Sarcococca

Peculiar plant! Perhaps from the Lily family? ID help please.

Question from james manning

In forum: Identify a plant

Hey team,

Walking today in the Bristol area, in a small wooden patch I encountered this! Never in my life seen one before.
Struggling to even identify the family or genus. Seems somehow tropical, though of course I'm sure it's not..
It has a very subtle but sweet perfume to it.

If you have any intel, I'm all ears!
many thanks

james

Yes, think you might be right with Horse Chestnut. (not sweet chestnut though)

Not sure, but if it blooms with a fragrant flower then it is a hespera or sweet dames rocket.

Help to identify a wild flower

Comment from paul Harradine

In forum: Identify a plant

My question was to help identify a wild flower that my dad grows in the garden as he has forgotten the name !

He tells me that this plant was plentiful in the ridge and furrow fields adjacent to our home in Cambridgeshire when he was a lad ( he is 85 years young now)
and they used to grow next to buttercups.

When he was a lad he used to pick the flower heads off the stem and suck the sweet fluid contained in the base.

I have attached the 3 photos that I tried to post plus an additional one

Your kind assistance is very much appreciated.

Kind Regards

If it is fragrant it is hesperis or sweet dames rocket, nice woodland plant.
