What is This Garden Plant?

August 1, 2015

What Is This Garden Plant?My friend just moved into a new home and we have been trying to figure out what kind of plant this is. It's grown very rapidly since she has moved in. It has flowers that only open at night and these spiky balls that just started growing on it.

Hello !
The plant is a Datura. Although the strenght of the toxins it contains depends on its age and condition of growth, consider all parts as extremely toxic, the seeds and the flowers being the most poisonous parts of the plant. It is an annual plant or a short live plant at the best. As it seems from the picture you have posted that the plant is reachable from the public space, I think that it should be cut back to its foot to do not run any risk.
Hope this helps.

This plant just showed up on my fence about 6 years ago growing incredibly fast. One year it flowered and had tiny bluish, purple blooms all over it. After some research I've decided it must be some type of morning glory.

I clipped a few pieces and put them in water. Will they root? And does anyone know what this is?

I think this is a corkystem passion flower. The leaves do not look heart shaped enough to be morning glory, but it could just be I am not seeing the leaves full on.

I'm not sure this plant has been identified yet.....
I have several (Florida) Passion Flower vines and none of mine look like this - leaves are similar but not the same.
Of course, there are several variety so I may be wrong but when I enlarge the picture I know none of my vines have a 'bloom' like this one.

If you have found your plant - please let us know.
You do not say where you live or how you came to have the cutting but if you contact your county extension office they may help you as they know what type of vines grow in your area.

The woman who used the plant with the purple buds in this Ikebana arrangement doesn't remember the plant's name, and we'd like to know what it is! Can you identify it? (I blocked out another plant up higher in the photo to avoid confusion).

This is Lathyrus, but it is difficult to identify the variety.

This looks like a lovely plant but it is a mystery to me.
It looks like it could be in the 'sweet pea' family as other members have noted but since there are many varieties it is difficult to tell for sure.

I'm pretty sure that is a Double Petunia. There are many varieties, so I don't know it's exact variety name. You could search Double Petunias to see if you can match up your particular plant, or just call it a "Mother's Day Double Petunia" !!!!!

Enjoy it. If you hang it outside, you may get Hummingbirds checking it out even though their favorite color is red.

I found the identification. It was stuck deep in the plant. It is a MiniFamous Neo Double Deep Yellow Petunia. Says it is self cleaning-less work for me. Height 8-12 inches. Spread 12-15 inches. This sounds like fun.

I believe it is solanum virus, also known as tropical soda apple. It is part of the nightshade family and is considered an invasive species.

Does anyone know the variety of this dogwood? It was said to be a western dogwood. It is not. The closest I have come while researching is the Ivory Halo dogwood, but its leaf margins are almost pure white, not a very deep cream as the picture shows.

Maybe someone has this tree?

The picture shows just a few of my gardening folders. For the most part, I know the name and variety of everything I grow. Sometimes, one will escape me. What Is This Garden Plant?

 

I don't know how I came by this flower.

I have searched the Internet repeatedly and cannot find a picture or name. It is a garden perennial and I'm sure it is fairly common. What is the name of this flower?

Green leaves with white edges.What kind of plant is this? I know it's not a mint because the stem is round, not square but it does run. I know it's not a Charlie, but the leaves are about the same size. It has a distinct odor that is not very pleasant.

It has very small stocks of white flowers in the fall. The leaves are soft and velvety and some have a pink tint on the edges. It is drought tolerant and frost resistant. I thought it was Mexican oregano but when I Google it the pictures are not the same.

I think it might be what we used to call a beefsteak begonia. It should get a begonia flower on it soon if it is.

Hmmm. Those are really big leaves! So now I'm thinking rhubarb. Soil pH determines whether the stalks are red or green. It's perennial, if that helps. Good luck! I hope someone can answer definitively!

Closeup of pinkish flower on vine.Can anyone identify this plant for me? It just started blooming and will bloom until frost. It will then be killed to the ground and will remain dormant until late spring. At that time it will put up long shoots from the ground and grow into a vine.
