#3 in original layout appears to have 2 perky little stamens - is it a Veronica?
YES!!! 2. is Valeriana officinalis (just finishing off) (macskagyÃ¶kÃ©r)
(1. NOT Plantago sp. ...)
(3. Oh, it's soooo common here... hm... just like Dalea species... :)))
Lila, that last one might be common weediness where you are, but it's not down here and if I don't find out what it is soon my brain will explode!!!!
Oh, sorry... I hope you are still alive... :))) Here are the "whole" pics:
That last one's not a Sambucus, is it? My goodness....
YES!!! It's a Sambucus... muhaha... :)
(And the other is a Persicaria bistorta...)
Thank you for putting me out of my misery!!!!Really cross that I didn't spot the Polygonum bistorta, syn Persicaria bistorta.Completely fooled by the pyramidal shape of the flower spike,ours are a complete cylinder shape.With us the leaves really remind me of dock leaves, Rumex obtusifolius, so your leaves didn't help!
Photo is the garden cultivar P. bistorta Superba.
Woohooo! and also I'm kind of smacking my head over here - our Persicaria are also cylindrical. Hm.
I think the pyramidal shape of the flower spike is OK, because the plant isn't in full bloom, and this is a wild plant, not a garden cv., so it's flowers are much smaller...
4 -- Clinopodium vulgare
