    Hello all

    I hope you are well.

    I am in the process of melting so before I become a gooey mess could someone please identify these four plants for me?

        Hello @noisette47

        I am trying to identify the Ceanothus (4) but am not having much success, especially since it seems to have red fruit and I was not aware that any Ceanothus varieties had red fruit.

        This is a closeup of the plant, do you happen to know which variety it is?

        Hello @Victoria

        Thanks for the reply.

        I agree that the leaves look similar but on the page you linked to there is no mention of any kind of red fruit so I am unsure.

        Also, it has not had any flowers this year yet and it says it flowers in Spring and Early Summer.

        Thanks

        Kevin

        Hello @Victoria

        Thanks for the reply.

        I will take a look at the Variegated Euyonimous.

        As for the Minions, it kind of describes my sense of humour, also, you may or may not know but the Minion in my Avatar is my namesake.

        I think I have gotten older but not necessarily grown up :)

        Time is a difficult concept for me as I tend to experience it differently to most, I have been told that I have Chronoception which does explain some but not all and there is very little known about it currently.

        Basically, I am now 53 years old but I feel every age simultaneously, I have the feelings of a Toddler, Teenager, etc. all at the same time, it can be difficult at times :)

        Sorry for rambling :sad:

        Now to Google.

        Thanks

        Kevin

          Interesting.Hmmm!
          All Euonymus sp can be ruled out as leaves are opposite.
          Mystery plant leaves are alternate.
          Ceanothus fruits are hard, nutlike capsules.
          Interesting I have never seen these...maybe not hot enough in UK.

          This plant at some stage this year had flower...maybe so tiny they were missed.
          First flowers followed by berries, seed pods.

          Kevin please can you add new pics to show a leaf and these red berries.

          Hello @Silver surfer

          Thanks for the reply.

          I have tried to get close ups of the leaf and fruit, not perfect but hopefully good enough.

              Hello @pete and @Silver surfer

              Thanks for the replies.

              Sorry for the delay in replying.

              I will keep an eye on it and update you when, or if, it gets flowers.

              The link to the Ceanothus El Dorado does make sense as it is relatively small and this plant is located against a 1m tall fence.

              Thanks for your help with this, it is appreciated.

              Kevin
