Plant IDs please.
I have a couple more plants I have photos of that I'm not sure what they are. Any ID suggestions greatly appreciated. The first plant is planted in full shade, started out as a tiny little thing several years ago and seems to have reached quite monstrous proportions. I have a feeling this is the same plant my dad and his friend gave a 'haircut' (they scalped it) around 18 years ago, but I'm not certain. I think it gets yellow flowers, but not sure when (or if I dreamed the flower).
The second plant was given to my mom by my nan about 3 months ago. It sat in its pot on the kitchen windowsill for ages, until it got covered in spider mite at which point it migrated to the deck, which is where it sat. I'm sure my nan said what it was but I can't remember for the life of me. Couldn't even say if it has ever flowered (most plants seem to give up and refuse to flower when my mom gets her hands on them).
The final plant which is has a fair amount of grass mixed in with it, is planted in a pot in pretty much full sun. Pretty sure its a creeper of some sort, but not sure what. If I remember rightly gets small purple flowers, but not sure when.
Fingers crossed the weather stays dry for Friday, I have the day off and plan to attack the garden. Clear out the pots and get rid of the dead lavateria and other weeds that have popped up. Just got to decide whether or not to dig out the two very straggly heathers. Don't think I can prune them back, they are pretty leggy, no green towards the base at all. Ho hum, can't wait to start planting things :D
