Clues and discussion:

  • I found this while working on the gallery Tagetes patula and couldn't believe that this image was correctly identified as the leaves are quite different to other Tagetes plants...
the image description is: The inflorescence of cultivated Tagetes patula. Moscow region, Russia. 13. August 2009
--Anna reg 13:04, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
It's a Zinnia. --SB_Johnny

That's convincing - I changed the description to a flowering Zinnia culitvar.. Thanks for your help. --Anna reg 12:51, 12 April 2010 (UTC) talk 14:49, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Unknown plant jomegat 8260.jpg


Request made by Jomegat


Clues and discussion:

  • I took this photo on the banks of the Merrimack River back in August. At the time, I thought it might be Mentha arvensis, but then I stumbled across BCP/Lycopus virginicus and thought maybe... that's what this is?
  • I dont think so, its Lycopus. It really look more like Mentha, especially its flowers and color.--Juan de Vojníkov 10:14, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Because if I look in Google: [1].--Juan de Vojníkov 10:21, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
    • This looks like Urtica dioica - stinging nettle - to me, but I'm not 100% sure. The leaves don't seem to be toothed enough for that, and I can't make out any hairs on the stem. --Trinity507 01:31, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
      • After closer inspection of the photo, it does look more toothed and it does have hairs, but the flowers don't look right. Hmmm. --Trinity507

It,s definitely a Mentha, but they do very often hybrids, so you can (almost) never know, exept you got a Flora of the region... --Wer?Du?! (talk) 21:17, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Lespedeza capitata 8071.jpg


Request made by Jomegat


Clues and discussion:

  • This plant was about 80cm (~30 inches) tall. The flowers were ~3mm across. You can get a pretty good idea of the scale by looking at the ant-sized bug in one of the blooms in the photo (it was a "medium-sized" ant).
    • It's definitely in Fabaceae, but otherwise I'm not familiar with it. --SB_Johnny talk 14:21, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
      • Maybe it's Lespedeza capitata? --Jomegat 19:37, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Yes, it is Acer. the only centr. european trees with opposite leaves i know are Acer and Fraxinus. Because of leaf shape and because it was found in Czech, it should be Acer pseudoplatanus. -- Turnvater Jahn 17:33, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Clues and discussion:

  • Common weed in the Czech Republic. Probably from the family Duacaceae?--Juan 19:16, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Think, this is from family Apiaceae. What are Duacaceae? -- Turnvater Jahn 17:57, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
    • I see Duacaceae is the older synonym for Apiaceae from Daucus carota.--Juan 07:52, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • I'm fairly certain this is Queen Anne's Lace, Daucus carota. Some that I have seen have very sparse blooms, like the one you saw, Juan, and even though they are supposed to have a little dark flower in the center, many do not. --Luai lashire 17:32, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
    • This is not Daucus carota, that species I know.--Juan 07:52, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • But Daucus carota leaves are stronger pinnate. What you said about the dark central flower is my experience, too. -- Turnvater Jahn 19:22, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • I'm thinking Conium maculatum aka Poison Hemlock. Daucus carota has bracts with three forks beneath the umbrels. I don't see any bracts here. --Jomegat 01:31, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Does the 3rd image show a whole leaf? if yes, and if it was not a young one, i think, it is typical that the bottom subleaves are not further divided, only pinnate. -- Turnvater Jahn 14:44, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Unknown plant, Ostrava 6.jpg


Request made by Chemgym


Clues and discussion:

  • Should be some Veronica. Where was it found? If in centr. europe, it should be Veronica chamaedrys or Veronica teucrium. The first with two stripes of hairs along internodes, the second with fully haired internodes. -- Turnvater Jahn 18:07, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Not Veronica persica, which has solitary flowers and alternate leaves. I'd identify it as V. chamaedrys, but I don't know V. teucrium, and there are other species related to the fromer in Central Europe. 80.176.90.190 17:14, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Also think so. The leaves are much too triangular. -- Turnvater Jahn 14:46, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
  • The plant is Veronica chamaedrys agg., not Veronica teucrium or Veronica persica; this is probably Veronica chamaedrys, but there are some very similar species in Eastern Europe (such as Veronica vindobonensis), even though Veronica chamaedrys is still the most likely possibility. Some months ago I changed the category and description of Commons:File:Unknown plant, Ostrava 6.jpg. --Robert Flogaus-Faust 19:08, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't look like the C. speciosus I occassionally see - the large-flowered spring-flowering crocuses are hybrids of C. vernus; C. speciosus is autumn-flowering. 80.176.90.190 11:52, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Definitely not C. speciosus; possibly a large-flowered Dutch hybrid (therefore a C. vernus cultivar) – and so out of focus one wonders why it was then uploaded to Commons (where it was then misidentified as a snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis???!!!) SiGarb 18:20, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

, unknown flower request

Identification request 15:49 30 January 2008[edit]

Another shrub I have seen flowering in the park, has white flowers. The smell is intensive, when close to the nose. Every time there are two flowers in one brachyblast - so it looks a little bit like inflorescense. Four white juicy petals make firstly a corrola (cup) together after 0.5cm they are separate whith partly ping touch, when on the bag I can see pink line (venation). Each flower has 5 filaments much longer than corolas are. Anthers are covered by yellow polen grains and they look like the swing, becouse stamen is conected with anthers in the middle of their lenght. Calix is made by two petals in closter of two flowers. In the midle, there is a pistil with a long stile, not higher than filaments.--Juan 16:04, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Some people told me it could be Schizandra, but if I have a look on this picture and imagine flower diagram, I should say no: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Schisandra_sinensis_flower.jpg. --Juan 15:37, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
Identification request 15:49 30 January 2008[edit]

Also no pic with my request - having no digital camera. I have seen flowering kind of Corylus - probably cultivated variety, which was having both male and female flowers on the same shrub. The inflorenceces are nearly two times bigger then inlor of Common Hazel. They are ping or something like that.--Juan 16:04, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Possibly a species of w:Alnus? Its catkins are pink when partially open (assuming you meant pink when you typed "ping"). --SB_Johnny | talk 12:24, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Well, I will have a look on leaves, because the design of the schrub and leaves looked like Corylus.--Juan 09:17, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Identification request 30 January 2008[edit]

Sorry, no pic (yet) but yesterday, I saw an extensive shrub/bush with leaves that looked vaguely like w:Holly (ie hard, dull-shiny, with spikes at several points around the leaf), which was flowering profusely in elongated clusters of small yellow flowers, and which gave off a powerful smell when I walked by. Any ideas? Cormaggio talk 13:35, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Possibly w:Mahonia? (Image:Mahonia_media_flowers.jpg) --SB_Johnny | talk 13:57, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
I think you might be right! Not sure which species though - perhaps Mahonia bealei.. Cormaggio talk 17:30, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
BCP/Mahonia bealei is generally the most commonly seen in the US, not sure about where you are. Bloom time sounds about right though, since it blooms in very early spring here in PA (I missed it last year, but will try to visit that garden to check this year). It also gets a lot larger than the other species. --SB_Johnny | talk 18:09, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Clues and discussion:

  • Seen May 1 in a garden in Southeastern Pennsylvania. No pic of the fruits because I pulled them out. --SB_Johnny | talk 14:19, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
It looks like Brassicaceae.--Juan 17:13, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
It is definitely w:Nasturtium sp. and my colugue think it coudl be N. officinale.--Juan de Vojníkov 17:21, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
This cannot be Nasturtium because the species from this genus that can be found in Pennsylvania should have pinnate or pinnatisect leaves. You might think about penny cress (Thlaspi arvense) instead (see e. g. [3] and [4]). --Robert Flogaus-Faust 18:56, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Request made by Cormaggio talk


Clues and discussion:

  • Ok, firstly, this is not a photo of the plant I say today. :-) I saw a cherry-blossom type tree in bloom today - it had tiny white flowers (about 2cm in diameter), and the reason I uploaded this photo is that the leaves look vaguely similar (ie elongated). However, from looking at photos of this plant, I'm pretty sure it's not campanulata, but another prunus. Any ideas? Cormaggio talk 18:38, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

    • The pink forms are sometimes referred to as commons:Anemone hupehensis, but I'm reasonable sure this particular one is a hybrid (though many botanists consider x hybrida to be a synonym in any case). --SB_Johnny | talk 17:46, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Clues: Foliage present by midwinter, flowering in May. Seems to be in Brassicaceae. Arrived in this Southeastern Pennsylvania garden about 3 years ago, and has rapidly spread by seed. Does not appear to be perennial. I did not notice any aroma.

This looks very much like Cardamine impatiens. The photo does not show clearly the characteristic auricles at the base of the stem leaves. I am not familiar with the flora of Pennsylvania, so I can not tell with certainty, whether there exists another similar species. --Franz Xaver 09:16, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
