Re: Help identifying two shrubs

from Botanic Jewels Design

I agree that the third photo appears to be a variegated Pittosporum.

Re: Please can someone tell me what this is

from Botanic Jewels Design

Wildflower, Arum maculatum, otherwise known as Cuckkoo pint, Lords and Ladies etc
Contains toxic glycosides and has irritating sap! But fascinating nevertheless...

Re: Help identifying two shrubs

from Botanic Jewels Design

I think the first one could be Daphne odora Aureomarginata (edges of leaves reverting a little as in poor light?) and the second variegated one, possibly Cornus alba Elegantissima ?

Re: Any idea of what this plant is please?

from Botanic Jewels Design

I too think it's a Choisyia Aztec Pearl, which has been damaged. Looking closely I can see a broken branch, which is best removed near base, when the weather cools down. This will stimulate new growth. Suggest moving (during cooler, wetter spell) to more sheltered but still sunny spot, in fertile, humus rich well drained soil. Mulch and water in well and be sure to feed. Or you could try it in a plastic pot until it recovers in a mixture of JI no3 and multicompost.

Re: I need more help identifying another plant

from Botanic Jewels Design

It's a Pinus, but you may need to look through the 47 in the listing for this Genus to try and work out which one ......

Re: identify Palm please

from Botanic Jewels Design

I too think this is Chamaerops humilis, distinguished from Trachycarpus fortunei by its more rigid upright nature and spikes on stems, which I can't confirm on your photo as it's slightly out of focus.

Re: I feel I should know this, but cannot remember

from Botanic Jewels Design

I also think this plant may be a camellia; it appears to have some nutrient deficiencies. The plant us very close to the house wall and thus may also be very dry in this pot, especially as it's hardly rained in past few weeks!

Perhaps repot in ericaeous soil, when flowering over, in slightly larger (suggest plastic pot) as terracotta seems to dry out too quickly when plant camellias are in bloom!

Identification of small weeping tree?

from Botanic Jewels Design

Can anyone confirm identification of this small weeping tree please in friend's garden. Wondering if it's a Salix integra pendula? Attaching two photos - one of leaves in Nov, other of the buds in March.
