Staffordshire, West Midlands, United Kingdom
Can anyone help with some plant ID's? I've gone round the garden, camera and all trying to identify plants. I don't think I've done too badly. However, it would seem I have a few plants which (according to Gardeners World) like alkaline soil and a few which like acidic soil. Hmm me thinks I've got it wrong somewhere.
I'm fairly sure we have a Syringa Vulgaris Andenken an Ludwig Spath: Common Lilac, Hyancinthoides non-scripta: Bluebell, Crocosmia x Corcosmiiflora: Mars, a Poppy (not sure which type), an Orange Blossom of some sort, a couple of straggly heathers and we did have (before winter killed it) a lavatera Barnsley. I think we may also have a Euonymus Fortuni: Emerald and Gold and Hypericum calycinum: Rose of Sharon. From looking at the info on Gardeners World it looks like the majority of the plants prefer alkaline soil. But then we have the Rose of Sharon (I think) which apparently prefers acidic soil! Any suggestions guys?
Any help with the following plants would be much appreciated. The first two images (hope they work ok) are of two plants which recieve afternoon sun (for the most part). the third image actually shows three plants. The centre plant has purple flowers which in the photo are still green. The variegated plant to the right of it I think could be Euonymous Fortuni Emerald Gaiety but I'm not sure. The plant to the left I have no idea what it is, don't remember seeing it flower. These thee plants never see direct sunlight (too much shade from neighbouring trees). There are a couple of other plants as well, but I can't fit any more images on the question so they will have to wait.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
