I've just moved house and have a few plants in the garden that I'm unsure of, if anyone could help that would be great.


1. Apple or pear?

          1: Apple

          2: Geranium endressi possibly the variety "Wargrave Pink"

          3: Geranium himalayense

          4: Meconopsis cambrica - Welsh Poppy

          5: Centaurea montana

          6: Rose variety - not able to tell which from this pic.

          7: Fennel Feoniculum vulgare

          8: Magnolia stellata

          9: Cotoneaster

          10: As you thought Hydrangea - probably a Mophead or Lacecap type & cleavers...

          11: Ceanothus cultivar - there are several with golden variegated leaves.

          12: Geranium macrorrhizum

          13: Pieris japonica

          14: Camellia there are many varieties and species...

          15: Bamboo, possibly Arundinaria sp.

          16: Lysimachia ciliata "Firecracker" - Loosestrife "Firecracker"

          17: Looks like a twig from a Forsythia.

              Hi Jon,

              sorry for the delay in reply, I've been away alot recently.

              The only thing you have which might be a problem in terms of being invasive is the Bamboo. The Centaurea montana can creep a bit but is easy to dig up.

              The Ash tree is probably okay in terms of not posing a threat to your house but think carefully about where it is and how much shade it will cast in time, is it close to a fence, etc - Ash grow to become very big trees, but it is probably okay for the time being.

              the rest of your plants -

              18. Is a varigated Ivy

              19. Another Hydrangea - mop or lace-head

              20. Hydrangea petiolaris - a self clinging plant that will grow up walls, trees, etc. It does no damage and makes a lovely plant with cinnamon brown bark and white flowers in time.

              21. This is one of the Dead Nettle, Lamium, possibly the yellow flowered one or if lemon scented when crushed rather than rather acrid it is Lemon balm, Melissa - both can be a bit invasive, but easy to control.

              22. Prunus cerasifera 'Nigra'

              23. It is hard to see from you pic but if the pale cane stretching from this grass to under the purple tree is part of the grass rather than a bamboo cane then I would suggest this is a Pampas grass - Pampas have very sharp teeth along the edges of the quite tough leaves. If not a Pampas then could be a Miscanthus, has it flowered since you took the pic?


              Hope that helps...
