Name Of Purple Plant With Pink Flowers
by: Kimberly

Hi Pamela, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thank you for asking the question on what type of plant you have.

Claude, thank you for answering the question. I agree with Claude, it looks like a Purple Heart. This is a sub-tropical to tropical plant that has beautiful tiny pink flowers that will come out during the day. They will close up and repeat their beauty each day. Beautiful specimen for color in any garden.

Thanks again Pamela for asking the question and feel free to ask anytime. Thanks again also Claude for answering the question. Have a great day.

What kind of shrub is this?

by amanda
(fair play, m.o., u.s.a.)

I was wondering what kind of shrub this is. It flowers in the early spring. It's about five feet tall and it forms berries later on in the fall. The berries don't look edible though. It's deciduous but the leaves never change color. Can you help, please?

What Shrub is This?
by: Kimberly

Hi Amanda, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thank you for asking the question on identification of a shrub? Without a picture I can't be 100 percent sure. I do beleive from what you described it sounds like an Indian Hawthorn.

The Indian Hawthorn has springtime flowers of pink and white. The leaves stay the same throughout the year will a little change during the cooler fall and winter monts.

In the fall, blue berries apprear throughout the shrub. The are not edible. I do think this may be the plant you have described. If anyone else has other suggestions, feel free to share them.

Thanks Amanda again for asking the question. Feel free to ask anytime. Have a great day.

I'm new at gardening. Anyways, I planted this two years ago and cannot for the life of me remember its name.

Do you think you could help me? I'm wondering if it is a Viburnum farreri Nanum.

Here's the picture, please disregard the little annuals underneath it.

Thanks!

What is the name of this white flowering shrub
by: Kimberly

Hi Pamela, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thanks for asking the question on the identity of your shrub. To be honest, it's hard to identify it from the photo, but very well could be a Viburnum. Not 100 percent sure though.

Maybe some one else can help out. Thanks again Pamela for asking the question. Hope you have a great day.

Don't Know What Type Of Plant?
by: Kimberly

Hi Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thanks for asking the question on identification of your plant.

I am trying to visualize your plant and off the top of my head it may be some type of sub-tropical to tropical plant. A couple of questions for you.

What climate zone do you live in? Is this a container or ground plant? Would there be any chance you could download a picture so we can see the plant. I have gone through the tropical plants I know, and also gone looked through some books. We might be able to help you identify your plant if we could see it. I am curious to identify it for you as well. Just follow the instructions to download a picture.

Thanks again for asking the question and look forward to hearing back from you. Have a great day.

Is This A Viburnum Rufidulum Raf.?

by Pamela
(Hinesville, GA)




I am truly new at gardening and didn't realize that knowing the type of plants, trees and shrubs are important for their maintenance. Please tell me if this is a Viburnum Rufidulum Raf. I took pictures of both sides. This should be my last question for a while:-)

Is This A Viburnum Rufidulum Raf?
by: Kimberly

Hi Pamela, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thank you again for asking a question on the identification of your shrub.

Thank you also CD for giving your comments. I have to agree with CD, the shrub looks like a Double Reeves Spirea. The leaves of a Spirea has little jagged edges, and the leaves in your photo are like that. Viburnum leaves have smooth edges.

The best of luck to you and thanks again for asking the question. Have a great day.

what type of tree

by marti
(rockford, il,)





Have a tree that just appeared without our planting it. (home in which we bought had an inground pool that the previous owners had turned into a flower garden that has turned into a bunch of trees and weeds taking over.)

I have never seen this tree before. Wanting to do something with this eyesore area but I am wondering if I should save the tree. I live in Rockford IL.

Hi Marti,
Kim here from landscape solutions for you. Thank you for asking the question on identifying this tree.

I have done some research and I am not sure of the identification of this specie. I contacted one of my professional peers that is a landscape architect and she was unable to identify it as well.

What has stumped both of us is it's sub-tropical to tropical characteristics, which is uncommon in Illinois.

From looking at your pictures, the growth of the tree is all on the top. A couple of suggestions.
You said the area had weeds and other trees. Are you planning on incorporating your own landscape and gardens? If you are and the tree seems healthy, I would consider keeping the tree and planting complimentary trees, shrubs and flowers around the tree. It can become a focal or accent point, and take away the eye sore.

If you want to start fresh with your own personality, I would recommend cutting the tree down. Make sure if you do, you get the entire root system.

I am sorry I couldn't help you identify this tree. I will continue to research this for you and also talk to some professionals in the area here. If anyone can help Mari out, that would be wonderful. Look forward to hearing if someone can identify this tree. Thanks everyone.

Thanks again Marti for asking the question and hopefully we will be able to find the identification. Have a great day.

Unknown plant

Unknown plant

Unknown plant

I saw this in many gardens on Vancouver Island when I was there in March, but nobody could tell me the name of it. I'm dying to find out more about it, and see if it would grow in Southern Ontario!
It has masses of little white bell shaped flowers, variegated leaves and the new growth starts out red. The flowers are not fragrant at all. Please help!

Identifying Your Plant
by: Kimberly

Hi Susan, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thank you for asking the question on identifying the plant.

The plant is a Mountain Fire, Pieris Japonica. This is a beautiful shrub that will do well in zones four through nine. The plant comes to a focal point of a garden in the late winter and early spring months. Free flowing flowers blossom and creates a mass look in a garden. The Pieris Japonica should do fine in your zone. Below is a page on landscape solutions for you and the Pieris Japonica. Great addition to any garden. You can also put some varieties in containers.

Thanks again for asking the question and have a great day.

what kind of flower is this?


I have a plant (bulb variety that I thought was an Iris because of its leaves). Turned out the plant was not an Iris but has beautiful multi small red flowers on it. Can you tell me what this is?

What Kind Of Flower Is This?
by: Kimberly

Hi, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thank you for asking the question on what type of flower you have.

When I first looked at this a variety of Lily came to mind. The flowers looks like it could be a member of the Lily family.

You mentioned Iris, which has similar traits to the picture you sent. I also thought at first it might be a Southern Star - Star Of Argentine. The Southern Star is more tropical in nature and if grown in cooler climates, it's an annual.

I am not sure what climate zone you are in, but from what I could tell of the photo you send, the Lily family could be a very good possibility. If anyone else has some other thoughts, we would love to hear them.

Thanks again for asking the question of identifying this flower, and feel free to ask anytime. Have a great day.

Help, I can't identify this shrub

by Pamela
(Hinesville, Ga)



Hi Kimberly,

This is Pam again. I purchased this shrub a couple of years ago and didn't document the name as I've began to do with the newer plants and shrubs in my garden. Could you please help me? I'm trying my best to take good care of my babies:-) I've attached a picture of the shrub and the leaves.

Thanks.

Hi Pam, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thanks for asking the question on identifying your shrub.

Is there any way you can upload of photo of the entire shrub. This may make it easier to identify the shrub. A couple of questions also. Does the shrub flower? Is the shrub an evergreen or deciduous?

Look forward to hearing from you so we can get this shrub correctly identified/ Thanks again for asking and have a great day.

Purple Leaves And Name This Plant
by: Kimberly

Hi Ann, Thanks for sharing some more information on identifying this tree. It very well could be a Purple Plum tree. The Purple Plum has leaves that become totally purple after the new growth has arrived. It is a deciduous tree and great planted around evergreens. I don't think it is any kind of Japanese Maple, but very well may be the Purple Plu. Let us know if this is a possibility.

Thanks again Ann for responding and have a great day. Look forward to finding out for sure what this tree is.

Name Of Plant With Burgundy Leaves
by: Kimberly

Hi Ann, Kimberly here from landscape solutions for you. Thank you for asking the question on identifying the plant.


A few ideas come to mind. The tree or shrub you are talking about could be a Loropetalum. There are many different family members that come in a variety of sizes. Loropetalums are evergreens with purple tone leaves.

It could also be a deciduuous Barberry shrub. Certain varieties will have the purple to pink tone leaves.

Do you know if this tree or shrub is evergreen or deciduous, and if it flowers? If you have a picture to send, that would be great in pin pointing the exact identity.

Thanks again for asking the question here. I will link you to the site map page as this has everything on the website. There is a page on the Loropetalum and also Barberry with photos, that may help you out. Have a great day.
