More Plants in Disguise.

138 comments


It’s amazing to see a green garden after the black and white one I had only a few days ago – when I posted a blog with ‘plants in disguise’ for you to identify.

Here’s another set to have a go at – but this time I’ll make it easier, so that nobody can say ‘I can’t’.

I’ll add the photos of the flowers or plants for you to match up with the ones in disguise.

*THE ANSWERS!

1.

7.

Agastache foeniculum

2.

4.

Aster

3.

6.

Chrysanthemum ‘Mei Kyo’

4.

9.

Itea virginica ’Henry’s Garnet’

5.

2.

Euphorbia characias subs. wulfenii

6.

3.

Sedum spectabile

7.

5.

Skimmia japonica ‘Fragrant Cloud’

8.

10.

Agapanthus

9.

1.

Phuopsis stylosa

10.

8.

Erysimum ’Walbertson’s Gold’

So there you are! How did you do? I think we had a tie for the winner, didn’t we? WELL DONE, Karen and Dottydaisy, but also well done to everyone and thanks for having a go. We’ll draw a veil over the cheats. They know who they are!*

Oh, Ok then, (sigh...) This is the best I can do.....the first quiz was far too tough for me!

1. Agastache (7)
2. Aster....mm....maybe! (4)
3. Tricky, but I think it might be the Chrysanthemum (6)
4. I think this might be Itea...mine has lost every leaf btw (9)
5. Euphorbia (2)
6. Sedum, poss. Autumn Joy (3)
7. Think this must be the Skimmia (5)
8. Agapanthus (10)
9. Process of elimination, must match no. 1 but don't know what it is. It's lovely though!
10. Erysimum (8)

Looking forward to finding out what no. 1 is. I've definitely seen it before, but I'm clueless!

12 Dec, 2010

 

sedum spectabile 3
aster 4
skimmia magic marlot 5
chrisasthamum 6
lavander 7
wallflower 8
im not good on actual full names but thats all i can guess barbara and probably wrong haahah

12 Dec, 2010

 

I think
1 is the Labiate with blue flowers. I have it but it's name is in the shed lol and i can't remember it
2
3
4 red leaved shrub - Photinia ?
5 Euphorbia
6 Sedum spectabile
7 Skimia (Magic Marlot ?)
8 Agapanthus
9
10 Wallflower

I can't make out which is which of the others :o(

It has been bad hasn't it. I hope it doesn't come back :o((

12 Dec, 2010

 

Oh, Hywel - so do I!

I'm not saying how anyone got on with this at the moment - or it'll spoil it for other people. :-(

12 Dec, 2010

 

No. 6 is Achillea and No. 8 is Agapanthus :o))))))

That's positively excellent for me!!

12 Dec, 2010

 

NO. 4 and NO. 9 match... pretty obvious....

12 Dec, 2010

 

1 matches with 7 ~ dont know its name
2 maybe matches with 4 which is a michaelmas daisy
3 possibly matches with 6 which is a chrysanthemum
4 matches with 9 which is one of the photinias
5 matches with 2 and is a euphorbia i think
6 matches with 3 and is a sedum
7 matches with 5 and that is a skimmia
8 matches with 10 and i think thats a white agapanthus
9 matches with 1 i think and the frozen one looks like a hebe
10 matches with 8 and thats a wallflower.
it was easier than last time ~ thanks spritz

12 Dec, 2010

13 Dec, 2010

 

Okay, it's not Achillea... it's Sedum... ah well, I got one right!!

13 Dec, 2010

 

is it definitely sedum pip?

13 Dec, 2010

 

Well everyone seems to think so, I thought it was Achillea at first.

13 Dec, 2010

 

i didnt read them all! wasnt sure what achillea was ~ is it yellow?

13 Dec, 2010

 

1 with 7 one of the slavia's no it looks like one of the bugles/ nettle family
2 with 4 one of your lovely asters
3 with 6 is it a chrysanthum one of the small japanese ones?
4 with 9 lucothe [cant remember how to spell it.] no its not is it Itea?
5 with 2 euphorbia
6 with 3 Sedum spectabilis
7 with 5 Skimmia
8 with 10 Agapanthus 'alba'
9 with 1 I know it as a woodruff Galium or Phuopsis.
10 with 8 perenial wallflower Erysium

13 Dec, 2010

13 Dec, 2010

13 Dec, 2010

13 Dec, 2010

 

I beat you to it though Sticki, I know what you are up to. want to copy my answers so everyone thinks you are clever.

13 Dec, 2010

 

everyone knows im not clever! i cant do those latin things ~ i put mine on already for this one tho!!!

13 Dec, 2010

2 maybe matches with 4 which is a michaelmas daisy,
3 possibly matches 6 which is a chrysantumum
4 matches with 9 which is one of the photoinias
5 matches with 2 and is Euphorbia I think
6 matches with 3 and is a sedum
7 matches with 5 and that is a skimmia

I Found This Rather Easy. Only took me 2 minutes. !!

13 Dec, 2010

 

YORKSHIRE!!!! have you been cutting and pasting????
you made me laugh

13 Dec, 2010

 

Oh sticki what are you saying, I don't know how to stick and paste honestly, You have cut me to the quick, I don't know what my dear Friend "SPRITZ" will think,

13 Dec, 2010

 

well in that case im very impressed with your typing speed managing to put all those down strangely in exactly the same format as mine ~ all in 2 minutes!!!

13 Dec, 2010

 

I'm a whizz at typing, Oh my goodness have you put answers on also, I must have missed that.

13 Dec, 2010

 

stop making me laugh yorkshire ~ im having enough trouble cooking ~ well burning tea, making cakes, answering quizzes making 20,000 cups of tea and what else was i doing?

13 Dec, 2010

 

frozen - - - (un-iced)
1 Agastache - (7)
2 Michaelmas daisy (4)
3 Chrysanthemum (6)
4 (red leaved shrub)? (9)
5 Euphorbia (mellifera?) (2)
6 Sedum spectabile (3)
7 Skimmia (5)
8 Agapanthus (10)
9 ?Eupatorium purpurea (1)
10 Erysimum (8)

Lots of guesswork here, especially no 9 - it looks a bit like Joe Pye weed (Eupatorium purpurescens) except the leaves are wrong.

13 Dec, 2010

 

you was talking to me,

13 Dec, 2010

 

You two - honestly! It's just like being back at school. You'll have to sit on the naughty step unless you behave! Sorry, Beattie, not you - LOL.

13 Dec, 2010

 

Please Miss, when are you posting the answers Miss?
This was fun to do.

13 Dec, 2010

 

well I am used to standing on the naught step, my daughter makes me go on it every time I see her, when you putting the answers on, I want to know if I won, !!!

13 Dec, 2010

13 Dec, 2010

14 Dec, 2010

14 Dec, 2010

14 Dec, 2010

 

someone on here accusing me of cheating. !!!!!

15 Dec, 2010

 

As if!

Now - if someone offered me a specimen-sized Tamarix.....hmmmm... ;-D

15 Dec, 2010

 

We all have our price lol

15 Dec, 2010

 

LOL. Unfortunately (for me) I don't think anyone will find one for me! ;-(

15 Dec, 2010

 

only if 'the cap fits' yorkie!!! luckily for me i put mine on first ~ actually i am quite happy to share my answers anyway ~ not that they would do anyone any good!!

15 Dec, 2010

 

Sticki, stop being a creep it won't work with Spritz, she is an honest lady, anyway I am to busy to discuss this with you I am searching for a Tamarix. !!!!

15 Dec, 2010

 

Only just found this today so no cheating here,LOL, have to say I`ve enjoyed the blog and chuckled all the way through the happy banter.
Very good Spritz, the photo`s are smashing, hope you were dressed warmly whilst taking them........

15 Dec, 2010

 

ive already sent my tamarix yorkshire ~ sent it by santapost!!1

15 Dec, 2010

 

LOL!! HOnestly!! You two are becoming a double act! This blog is getting sooooo long, it takes about 10 seconds to load on my page!! And STILL no answers! ;))

15 Dec, 2010

 

Ha Ha Ha Sticki, you slipped up there, you sent a Tamarix, I'm going to send a speciman sized one, so there, Karen Dear, if you want to know the answers just scroll back up and take a look at mine, think you will find I am the Winner,

15 Dec, 2010

 

i think its a punishment ~ no answers till someone owns up!!

15 Dec, 2010

 

Yer I agree, whoever has been cheating then "OWN UP " your spoiling it for all us who have entered this plant blog.

15 Dec, 2010

 

LOL!!

15 Dec, 2010

 

OK, OK. I'm here now, and I'm just about to edit the blog and tell you the answers. :-)))

All done and paired up. ;-)))

15 Dec, 2010

 

Finally, the answers, well I got the agapanthus right!

15 Dec, 2010

15 Dec, 2010

 

Thanks for posting the answers Spritz! Should have known Phuopsis - I had to get rid of it, couldn't stand the smell. Phew! opsis! Itea is a new one on me. Lovely though.

15 Dec, 2010

 

I only got one wrong so can I come second please, or close runner-up lol......the ones I thought were wrong were right......it was that Itea, was convinced it was a Leucothoe, good one Barbara, my head aches now, so I am going to bed..........

16 Dec, 2010

 

Humble apologies, Dd. I think it was a tie - so I've edited the 'results' in the blog to make it fair. :-)))

I hope your head ache has gone.

16 Dec, 2010

 

YAY!! I'm off to buy myself a prize! :))

16 Dec, 2010

 

I think I won, can I have my prize now Barbara, xxxxxxxx

16 Dec, 2010

 

Karen, what do you think of 'that' from Yorks? I don't know. These people who cheat and then demand a prize! LOL.

16 Dec, 2010

 

Me Cheat, I can't believe that, Oh come on Spritz whats my prize how big is it, I am so excited, Hey Karen I did n't cheat did I, I won I won I won, where's me prize.

16 Dec, 2010

 

What can I possibly say Yorks? lol....of course you won....the comedy prize!! :))

16 Dec, 2010

 

Oh Karen thank you thank you, I reported Spritz to Tt who very kindly said I could have a string vest for 1st or 2 string vests for 2nd, Hey what do you mean by the comedy prize, thought you was on my side,

16 Dec, 2010

 

What? and let you steal my rightful prize? Aye, that'll be right! ;)) ...note the slipping into Scottish accent there yorks, just incase you missed that!!

16 Dec, 2010

 

Excuse me little Miss Angus, you trying to tell me you won, never, bet you copied my answers and now trying to claim my prize,

16 Dec, 2010

 

Nobody calls me 'little' and gets away with it!

16 Dec, 2010

 

I SAY. " LET WAR COMMENCE" LITTLE MISS CHEAT,

16 Dec, 2010

 

I think I might also be a winner as I ony technically got No 1 wrong. and I rembered Itea eventually too..... Pity about the tamarisk I found .......... :o)
who cheated??? come on own up :o))

16 Dec, 2010

 

I think its Karen, !!!!!

16 Dec, 2010

 

Yorks is desperately trying to hold on to her string vests, but she knows who they rightfully belong to!

16 Dec, 2010

 

Don't listen to her, she knows I won, I need those string vests. I hate cheats.

16 Dec, 2010

 

STICKI....HELP!!!!!!

16 Dec, 2010

 

I got a few ! :o)

16 Dec, 2010

 

You won't get any help from Sticki. she is my friend not yours,!!!

16 Dec, 2010

 

i cant do arguments ~ spritz can you set a tie breaker??

16 Dec, 2010

 

your suppose to be my friend, whats going on here, has that Karen been sending you PM.s behind my back, what she will do to be declared the winner. she lost, don't listen to her Stickiuppy.

16 Dec, 2010

 

no she hasnt yorkie
i tell you what i will knit you both a string vest ~ would that do?

16 Dec, 2010

 

I am quite happy to forgo all prizes....I'm scared!

16 Dec, 2010

 

I wouldn't bother, Karen - cheats never prosper, do they. I have not got a single string vest to give as a prize - and who said there'd be prizes anyway???? LOL.

16 Dec, 2010

 

At work and very cold but reading this has made me giggle! Lovely pics Spritz :o))

17 Dec, 2010

 

That's good, Anne. :-)

Glad you liked the photos too!

17 Dec, 2010

 

Spritz, you are amazing to take the time and trouble to do all that, and then have to sort out the "in-fighting". It must mean you're back to good health? Great!
Have a rest now, and have a lovely Christmas. :)) x

17 Dec, 2010

 

Hey you lot. my husband just read these messages on here and he ask me if we are all in the same home.!!!!

17 Dec, 2010

17 Dec, 2010

17 Dec, 2010

17 Dec, 2010

 

Thanks Barbara, nice to win at something, and well done Karen couldnt tie with a nicer and more HONEST person, not like some people we know.....nod wink......

17 Dec, 2010

 

I wish I could award prizes, Dd. You and Karen did really well - so did Sbg! :-))

If I do write any more such blogs - there will have to be STRICT rules, won't there! ;-/

17 Dec, 2010

 

very strict! and we all sign up to them??

17 Dec, 2010

 

Ok enough is enough, I put my hand up, I CHEATED, it was just a bit of fun, it takes a very brave lady to admit to that, no more nodding and winking, or signing on the bottom line, YORKSHIRE CHEATED in BARBARAS Quiz, I copied Stickis answers, I realise none of you will want me on here now so I say GOODBY DEAR FRIENDS I WILL MISS YOU ALL, xxxxx

18 Dec, 2010

 

Oh YORKS!!!!! OK, OK, I forgive you. Now stop being noble and come back. :-)))))

18 Dec, 2010

18 Dec, 2010

18 Dec, 2010

 

Tell you what, Yorks - I'll start on a new blog, and you can be the first to have a try - can't say fairer than that, can I? xx

18 Dec, 2010

 

that is very fair ~ thanks spritz ~ looking forward to your entry yorks!

18 Dec, 2010

 

I think she's still in 'stamp foot mode', Sticki! LOL.

18 Dec, 2010

 

oh dear what can the matter be?
our dear yorkie's locked in the lavatory
she was there from this day to another day
nobody knew what to say!!??

18 Dec, 2010

 

I'm not stuck in the Lav silly you, thanks Spritz for the offer of a new blog, but I don't deserve it, just one more thing to say to you.

I'm BACK. did you miss me.

18 Dec, 2010

 

who are you?

18 Dec, 2010

 

im very pleased you are back!

18 Dec, 2010

 

its me Valeria, bet you have missed me, hope you have not been in tears all day, xx

18 Dec, 2010

 

Yes, but only because we've had blizzards. :-(((

I have posted a new 'quiz' just for you two! How about that?

18 Dec, 2010

 

i shall be studying all weekend spritz! thank you!

18 Dec, 2010

 

You're welcome, Sticki! :-)))

18 Dec, 2010

 

This blog is such a tonic, not laughed so much for ages, talk about a double act........☃

19 Dec, 2010

 

i like a laugh DD ~ thats why i come on here but OH is very cross ~ just cos he wants me running round after him ~ not very likely to do that!!!!!!

19 Dec, 2010

 

I get told off too - for spending too much time on line! Hey - who was that I saw playing 'Freecell' anyway? LOL.

19 Dec, 2010

 

glad im not the only one spritz ~ altho i wouldnt wish being told off on anyone [well anyone on here anyway!]

19 Dec, 2010

 

Is that because YOU got told off, by any chance Sticki? LOL.

20 Dec, 2010

 

im always being told off spritz! and i try to be sooo good.

20 Dec, 2010

 

Oooh, I know, I know! :-0))

N.B. I refrained from commenting on the 'try'! LOL

20 Dec, 2010

 

Well!!!! i dont know what to say!!!!
did i get told off on here? i didnt do anything wrong!
:-)

20 Dec, 2010

 

I told you I have spies! ;-)

20 Dec, 2010

 

are they wearing dark glasses?

20 Dec, 2010

 

I'd imagine so... snow-goggles! :-(((

20 Dec, 2010

 

and a hat?
and probably have a long orange nose?

20 Dec, 2010

 

Good idea - they'd be part of the landscape here! ;-/

22 Dec, 2010

 

snow finally melting here now ~ wonder what plants i have left?

28 Dec, 2010

 

Yes - I have a green garden again! :-))) I unfleeced the white bundles this morning, and most seem OK - maybe a little browning of leaf tips. The Hebe isn't looking too good, though. I'll have to wait and see for everything else. :-(

28 Dec, 2010

 

poor little hebe
darent take the fleece off yet ~ above freezing but still have appx 4" of snow

28 Dec, 2010

 

Yeeeuuggghh - I hope it goes soon - it's a real boost to the spirits to see green outside rather then white.

I think you're wise to leave your fleece on. Mine will go back later this week - they're forecasting frosty nights. :-(

29 Dec, 2010

 

a fleece over the top of the whole garden would be better!! be a bit like a cloud! then move it in the summer?

29 Dec, 2010

 

No thanks - I'm tired of a white garden! lol.
