Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

I do have jasmine (don't know about nudiflorum, although I do have other "art nudes, but they're not floral)

So I'll go with J for Jacaranda - always one of my favourite trees, absolutely love the richness of colour and the scent. I've singularly failed to grow one in England, but had several in my garden in Malawi when I lived there.

Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

Looks like we might be stuck on K - a list of plants beginning with K can be found here: http://www.plant-and-flower-guide.co...flowers-k.html

I don't have any of these, so we may need to skip to L?

Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

L is for Lily (or a Day Lily in this case )



A very hardy perennial from my back garden!

Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

N for Nigella (love in a mist). A somewhat sad and sorry specimen, this was taken in the Secret Garden of Biringham's Central Library on Wednesday when I was at a mee of a Flickr group. It's the second year we've all met up in Birmingham to cover the Christmas market there.

Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

Does this produce the seeds of the same name?

I think it's a different variety: nigella damascena (love in a mist) and nigella sativa (also known as Roman cumin) but I'm not really sure!

And as for O, has anyone got any Osteospermum Whirlygig Type | Ophiopogon Black Grass | Oenothera - the Evening Primrose?

No, but orchids are easy, I'd post one but was hoping to fill the 'P' space

We have three orchid plants but none are in flower - however I think I have one or two in the archive - will have a dig!

Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

O is for Orchid...

This (I hope) is a wild orchid photographed in the early Spring at a forest in the Vendée, France. If I am right it is an Orchis Mascula, or Early Purple Orchid.

Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

P is for Pasque Flower. Our village nature reserve is one of the top sites in the country for this quite rare flower.

Re: A-Z Challenge - Flowers

Q is for Queen Anne's Lace (more commonly known as Cow Parsley, but I can't find my quince flowers!)
