Plant identification please
« on: September 30, 2018, 11:38 »
I need help naming this plant please. It's self seeds and I have been cultivating the seedlings and giving them to friends. This is one of the. They spread to about 2 ft and long flower stalks come out of them with round ball like yellow flowers along the spear - blue light flower then stalk for about 6-inches then other ball like flower. Flower spring summer time.   when I get home later I will take a picture of the plant actually in my garden. but at friends now and would love to give them a name

Probably hollyhock, although they are usually a bit more than 2' tall...
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

I don't think it is hollyhock unless it is a different type than I am used to - here is a picture of the plant  -hopefully much easier to identify now

Crikey, it could hardly be less like a hollyhock!  :lol:

Will leave the ID to those more, er, fluent in Latin than me (e.g. MoS ;))

The leaves look like Echinacea but not the dead flower heads.

Not sure if that helps.

Hi,

Does anyone know what this is ? It doesn't grow very high. It flowered last year but I can't remember the flower colour. Our new garden is full of surprise some better than others!!

Many thanks in advance

Jane

Thank you so much for identifying the plant. It is grown in a narrow border at the side of a pond. I understand this is the perfect placement for the plant having now looked it up.

Happy gardening

Jane
