Re: Is this s Salvia

Message from Nic Jennings

In forum: Identify a plant

This is a night scented flower, if the temperature there is warm enough after dark it exudes a beautiful sweet aroma. The flowers can be any combination of yellow, pink and white or just one colour.
They grow wild all round my village here on Crete and the local council decimated them a couple of weeks ago in a "Strimmer clean-up" much to my chagrin.

Re: Red shrub

Message from Sylnoura

In forum: Identify a plant

Although it's difficult to see the plant's stems and weather the leaves are opposite or alternate, I'd guess it's either a Nardina or an Itea Virginica sweetspire. The latter would have remnants of the drooping long flowers which in your case are not seen, so the former is more likely. I might be wrong though.

Re: What kind of plant?

Message from Carol

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.
