Hm... but your logic is brilliant!!! ;)
Grand. So have I completely missed something? Do I have to wear the pointy hat declaring me a GOOD SPELLAR? Are you going to eat me?
Ã–Ã¶Ã¶... but it's REALLY A SPIRAEA sp. !!! :)
Huh. Spiraea prunifolia or Spiraea thunbergii then?
NO, their flowers are white! This Spiraea's flowers are light pink...
Really? My monitor's displaying them as white.
Back to the Googling board.....
Spiraea japonica (one of the pale cultivars) or Spiraea douglasii then.
Alternately, Spiraea salcifolia
YES!!!!!! Spiraea salicifolia!!! (fűzlevelű gyÃ¶ngyvessző)
(Not S. japonica, because I'm not from Japan... :) And I think S. douglasii is a North-American species, but it looks very similar to my little light pink Spiraea! (I'm not sure, but I think "my Spiraea" is a European, and also North-American native species... +you can find it, and it's hybrids in gardens everywhere...)
I'll give this another kick, then. #4 is in the Lamiaceae, and I'm thinking maybe Hurrian mint (Mentha dahurica) or Pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium)
Hm... only this 9 IDs are left!!! :)
Yes, 3 is in the Lamiaceae, but not Mentha sp. ...
Well this should be fun! 4 and 5 are both clearly Lamiaceae, but it's one of the most populous families in Hungary..... This should be fun...
Thymus vulgaris for #4?
Ballota spp (horehound) , Leonotis or Belphilia spp for #3?
I'd really have loved one of them to be the intruiguingly named Dracocephalum moldavica, but the flower habit and colour is all wrong... Colour and flower habit are wrong for Ajuga too, but it's quite pretty!
Original picture lay out. 15. Melampyrum nemorosum. Common name is Wood Cow-wheat.That was a hard one, never seen it before!
Original picture lay out. 8. Sanguisorba officinalis. Common name Great Burnet.
Took ages to pin down,even although we grow several types of Sanguisorba, never realised before that the flowers have no petals!Learn something new everday.
Yes, 4, 5 is Lamiaceae... but not Thymus, not Ballota, not Leonotis, and not Ajuga... :) (Sorry, but I don't know "Belphilia"... :((( What is it? Pic? Thanks!)
(Only 2 Dracocephalum species are native here, D. austriacum and D. ruyschiana, both species are very rare and protected!)
YES!!! :) (kÃ©kÃ¼stÃ¶kű csormolya)
Hm... yes... (őszi vÃ©rfű) I think this test is tooooo easy for you!!! :)
You have got to be joking!!!!Been driving me nuts.
Welcome to my brain fart. That should read Blephilia - here's the GIS on it
Hmmmm...... Blephilia really looks like #3 but who knows, other than you?
Here goes muffins - Hedeoma? Leonurus cardiaca? Lycopys europaeus? Nepeta? It's not really shrieking basil (Ocimum) at me.... Colour's too pale for most of the Salvia as well.....
Oh! Thanks! So Blephilia... hm, learn something new again! :) But it's not native here... and I never seen it. :(
3. nooo, not my new favorite Blephilia... :)
4. no, not Hedeoma, not Leonurus, not Lycopus, not Nepeta and not Ocimum (but this is not a bad idea for plant 3.! :)
Hm... Ã¶Ã¶Ã¶... but why is it too pale for a Salvia?!? I think this is a beautiful salvia-colour... :)))
Perhaps it's just that all of the Salvias that I'm used to are this deep violet violet colour, or very strong blues.
Not Salvia officianalis, surely?
Not S. officinalis...
Original picture lay out. 9. How about Sedum album. Common name White Stonecrop?
Original picture lay out. 5. How about Salvia verticillata? Common name Whorled Clary.
