    No, of course this is NOT my homework... SO PLEASE DON'T EAT ME!!! :))) (My boring homeworks are usually much harder... and not a bit interesting for you... unfortunately for me also not! :) This is an easy "European Wildflower Test"!!! So just relax, after Lorax's hard and purple "Tropical Flower Test"...

    YESYES, 10. (sédkender), 12.(fehér árvacsalán), 13. (erdei deréce) is OK, and 1., my favorite Dianthus (buglyos szegfű) also!

    (Half points for the English (or German, Kichua, French, Italian, Spanish, or any other...) common names! Hm... but unfortunately I don't think I'm able to check them... :( And one points for the Hungarian common names! :)

    Am I chuffed! So far so good. We grow a Dianthus Rainbow Loveliness, sure it must come from the wild form.
    We seem to love the same plants!

    I'm totally stumped.

    For #6 - Prunus spp. - I'm thinking Sour Cherries (Prunus ceresus)???

    You mean 8? NO, sorry but it's not a Phytolacca... But P. americana and P. esculenta are nasty invasive weeds here! :(

    Fine then - that along with geography makes me think
    Crataegus spp - Hawthorn. C. monogyna, perhaps?

    Alrighty - my other guess was Malus spp - Crabapples.

    I have to say, we were also in trouble because of this Dacty... :( But our last conclusion was: Dactylorhiza maculata subsp. ... Could be some subsp. transsilvanica, or some hybrid, because it was found in Transylvania, and the flowers of Transylvanian D. maculata subspecies are much whiter, and it's leaves are not always "maculated"...

    Jeebers. It's not Physocarpus, the inflorescence shape is wrong and so's the distribution if these are Hungarian natives. And if it's not a tree, that rules out Malus, Prunus, and Sorbus. Distribution is wrong for Exochorda, Cerocarpus, Chamaebatia, Purshia, Heteromeles. Flower habit is wrong for Dryas, Geum, Filipendula, Mespilus and Aruncus...

    Ruling out other trees and North American endemics, that leaves me with

    Spiraea or Pyracantha.

    They really don't look like anything from Rosa I've ever seen..
