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.

Re: Advice

Message from Carol

In forum: Identify a plant

Are you in a place that doesn't get severely cold winter weather - there's a hardy Gardenia (Kleim's hardy) and a delightful plant called Pittosporum tobira (there seems to be a variety called 'nanum' and a variegated one!). I've never seen a dwarf Choisiya, and Ceanothus has only a light scent.
Do you want the scent in summer?
Maybe Sarcococca humilis (sweet box) might do if you want scent earlier in the year.

Can anyone identify this bulb?

Question from Linda Rainbird

In forum: Identify a plant

I bought the bulb in Feb 2014, forgot it until May, put then in a very deep pot, and although it's made leaf in 2015 and 2016, it's finally flowered this year. It's in semi shade, and shares the pot with Gaura. It has a sweet kind of honey scent. Started to flower in July, still going strong. Any ideas? Thanks

It does look like Choisiya - but I would expect a strong musky smell from the leaves and a sweet fragrance from the flowers.

I am familiar with the rambler called Vielchen bleu, it has no thorns, is lavender in color and is sweetly fragrant.

Hoping to enjoy using this site a lot, only just found it but so far I like it, not sure yet if I will upgrade, need to see how useful/enjoyable I find it, first. Need I say that I LOVE growing things! :) I was just given a hebe (sweet dreams) as a gift and looked it up, and that's how I came across this place. My Abraham Derby rose just got every single leaf eaten by caterpillars :( so I hope to be able to help him recover, poor guy.

Cedrus or Picea?

Question from Steve

In forum: Identify a plant

Moved to new home and found this tree planted just one metre away from a Sweetgum tree, with a large Photinia in between and under power lines. Needless to say it couldn't stay there. Option was to cut it down or dig it up and see if it survives, no time to root prunes as building a wall this winter.

Not sure if its something like a Cedrus deodara 'Karl Fuchs' or a Spruce? It has a slightly drooping habit, coloured blue, silver, green and yellow. Stands about 11ft tall, was planted in heavy clay, east aspect in Essex. You can see most of its growth was on its North side as its south side was crowded by the Photinia & Sweetgum

What is this Very fragrant purple plant?

Comment from Vicki Rodger

In forum: Identify a plant

Would love it if anyone can tell me what this plant is. It is quite large, about 7 feet tall and about 7 or 8 feet across with very abundant clusters of these purple flowers. It has a fabulous sweet scent almost like honeysuckle. Thank you in advance!

I don't know what variety my sweet peas are (the young plants I bought just said 'mixed'. At first they seemed OK and are now about 9 inches high. But the plants look 'dried up' and as though they might be dying. They've been getting plenty of water, so I don't know why. Are they likely to survive?
