Can you help me on these plants?

This, *NEW TO US* home
has things growing, that we have NO CLUE...
do we keep, tear it up, ?
Do you know what this is?
Or this....and if they are worthy of keeping
can we transplant them

Now this, is our dogwood tree..
it's blooming is so much better,
in person...
This is kind of fun wondering what is
going to pop up, or bud and blossom
some probably will have to stay
or if my husband has his way
weeded....a nice way of saying
dug up and tossed !!!
Sure loving Spring this year !!
Hope you are too.

Isn't it funny how we love the flowers and want to know what they are and KEEP them, when our husbands just itch to get out there and dig them up??? LOL Wes is the same way!

Sorry, though, I don't know what any of your plants are!

what pretty flowers! lily of the valley is my most favorite flower... and even though everyone else i know has them growing like gangbusters, mine keep dying out... so sad:(

enjoy yours!♥

Michele said...

I don't know what they are....but if you like them, keep them! Just do part of them in case the transplanted ones don't make it.....the ones you left alone will just carry on.

The white ones look to be lily of the valley. They flower in the Spring and then just leave the greens for the rest of the season. If you like the smell of them they are great in little vases as they are very fragrant.
Lily of the valley are very hardy and will spread if given the chance.

The others look like Trillium to me but that is all I know. If thats what they are, I like them but think they are just Spring bloomers also.

I am pretty sure that the top one is Lily of the Valley and you will definitely want to keep that one...
Hope that you had a happy Mother's Day and wishing you a blessed week ahead!

DON'T throw them away. I don't know the names of them but I assure you they are not weeds. If you want to dig them up let me know and I'll come up and get them.
I love the plates used by Kim at Daisy Cottage. I did something like that last fall. http://quirkycottage.blogspot.com/2008/10/glass-garden.html
is the link to see what I did.
And thanks for the book review. I don't BUY many books but I might get that one.

I used to have lily of the valley at my old home - the top photo does not look like it to me! There are too many flowers and the leaves are different!

Look here for Lily of the Valley:http://www.fotosearch.com/photos-images/lily-valley.html

I would say the white ones are Lily of the Valley, I some too, and they look just like mine, I love flowers and the all the blooms in the Spring, all things have new life, kinda like being born again, all things become new..
Hope you find out for sure what they are.

Tracy said...

The middle one is trillium, that's all I know. They're all pretty, though!

Cathy said...

I don't know what they are, Deby, but I agree with Mrs. Rabe. That picture looks like a shrub! I thought lily of the valley was a small pretty plant with different leaves.

I'm not really sure about 1 and 3, but I believe that #2 is either a clematis or honeysuckle. But don't put it in stone! LOL

The pink flower with 3 petals is definitely a Trillium. They grow wild, mostly in woodsy areas. I had to do a plant collection in the 9th or 10th grade and we had to find a Trillium. They aren't that easy to find. They only bloom in early Spring usually. The first picture with the little white flowers is an ornamental shrub. I believe it will put out red berries (not edible) in the winter. It is not Lily of the Valley. Lily of the Valley has elongated clusters of tiny bell-shaped flowers.

My friend Lisa is great at recognizing plants. I emailed her and she looked at your blog, and emailed me the above message.

Love the Dogwood... I remember the one on Azalea... Good times! On a side note, I also remember convincing my sisters that a huge weed in our yard (Hastings) was a rutabaga plant... I don't even really know what one looks like! They believed me for a long time...
