It’s Tuesday Treats time again, and we’ve got another virtual Nature Table. Here goes, and good luck.
Edited to add: This image was simply titled ‘Acer’, so if you said ‘Acer’, you’d be right. I’m as sure as I can be that it’s Acer palmatum ‘Dissectum’, but which cultivar is a step too far for me from a photo. What we really need is a label…
2 The white flowered tree
Edited to add: This is Amelanchier lamarckii, the Snowy Mespilus.
3 Both of the white-flowered plants
Edited to add: This was a tricky one. The one at the back used to be Dicentra spectabilis ‘Alba’, but that isn’t its name anymore, so you only got a ‘half right’ if that’s what you said. I mean, I’ve moaned and whined enough about how such an elegant plant should be lumbered with its new, very inelegant name – Lamprocapnos. So, it’s Lamprocapnos spectabilis ‘Alba’, and there’s nothing I can do about it.
The plant in the front is Narcissus ‘Thalia’, a multi-headed triandrus daffodil with a sweet fragrance. In Greek myth, Thalia was the name of one of the nine Muses, one of the three Graces, or a nymph. Whichever Thalia this is named for, the name means ‘flourishing’ or ‘abundance’.
Edited to add: This came titled ‘Dicentra’, so I cannot say exactly which cultivar. It’s of the ‘formosa’ type, although apparently these are so hybridized we don’t use that any more. I’m guessing it could be either ‘Luxuriant’ or ‘Stuart Boothman’
Edited to add: A lovely double camellia. I don’t know which one, but I wish I did!
6 The blue-flowered plant (unconnected with the arum leaves in the background)
Edited to add: Don’t overcomplicate things. It’s a common or garden forget-me-not. Myosotis sylvatica.
7 The orange-flowered shrub
Edited to add: This picture came to me for identification. It’s a Berberis. If you said berberis, give yourself a tick. I think it’s Berberis darwinii, although there are other orange Berberis.
Edited to add. I couldn’t read the label, but others could! It’s Saxifrage ‘Pixie Pan Red’
I’ll edit this post to identify our mystery plants after Friday.
Edited to add: So, how did you get on?
