Question from Shannon Rutledge

In forum: Trees and shrubs

Is mid to late February too late to trim back my Crepe Myrtle? They have never been trimmed before & are quite tall & bushy. My neighbors say they are beautiful the way they are, they do bloom a bit late. They have large pink flowers.

Does anyone know the name of this shrub

These leaves are from a medium sized shrub which is growing next to a wooden fence in our back garden. The leaves droop a bit but I don’t have a clue about what it is

What plant is this

In forum: Identify a plant

We have lost the plant label for these two plants in our garden and cannot remember what it is called. They were purchased from Desert to Jungle centre near Taunton some years ago. Looked on this website but cannot find anything like it. It has green upright leaves (almost spiky),tinged with orange/bronze. In summer has spikes of tiny white flowers. Thought it was two version of same plant, but wife seems to think it is the same plant, same variety. Can anyone help identify it please?.

identification please

Question from Ann Burdett

In forum: Identify a plant

Grateful for identification of this plant in my garden. It is deciduous, summer flowering with blue flowers and is about 2 feet high, and attracts bees and hummingbird hawkmoth, so I would love to buy a couple more plants. Thank you.

Question from jennifer howells

Moved to new house 6 months ago and this plant is where I want to pave. Is it worth keeping I wonder. Cannot find it in my garden books and its unfamiliar as a weed.

Inherited shrub

Comment from Jane weller

In forum: Identify a plant

I found this shrub in a container when I moved in 1 year ago. Small, glossy, green evergreen leaves, slightly pink when new. It has never flowered. It has survived heat, wind and heavy frost unscathed. I thought at first it was a punica Granata, but not deciduous and no flowers. Any ideas?
