Help Naming These Plants

Postby jezcollinge » Wed Sep 07, 2005 6:27 pm

Can anyone identify these two plants?

They both appeared naturally in our garden.

The first two are the same plant (approx 2-3 feet high)

The third pinky-purple one is long and thin, growing about 2 feet tall, and can have a few long shoots coming from the same plant. We've one growing in soil, one in some sand and one out of a wall (seen in the background on our picture).

I'd be really grateful if anyone could help.

Thanks, Jez

Beats me, but the purple one is beautiful...

The first seems to me like genus Carex from family Cyperaceae. If not then from Juncaceae genus Luzula.

I can't find exactly the second because I don't see the leaf.
It can be in two family: orchidaceae ( I 've got one in my garden)(this kind of orchid have tuber like anacamptis). Or papilionaceae if it don't have tuber, you don't need to dig it, because you can see the leaf.
I will find the orchid 's name later.
Depend on leaf on the next tree, may be it is an orchid, but its pistil is papilionaceae's.

Thanks for your reply, Mothorc.

The first plant you mentioned (Anacamptis) has similar-ish flowers, but not exactly the same. The purple plant grew naturally on our back garden wall, and is about 2ft high, and very slim. It flowered from June to September.

Is the next tree the same?
Your plant look like papilionaceae than orchid, you can see the pistil at faded flowers. orchid have no pistil like this, it have a collum, and you don't see anything like this when orchid flower fade.

Please can someone give me a definite name for the second plant featured (the one with pinkish flowers).

I know the name of the other plant, but still require a name for the other one.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

Thanks, Desfayes.

The plant you mentioned is definitely cyperus eragrostis.

Do you know what the other plant is?

Thanks, Jez
