    Hello all,

    I've just moved house and am trying to ID two plants - I hope someone can help! The first looks a bit like a pink crocosmia (and is in full flower now), and the second looks like a very overgrown cotoneaster (it has a honeysuckle running through it). The cotoneaster-like plant is devoid of berries, which is making me wonder if it's something else?

    Thanks for your help :-)

      Hi Jiffy,

      Many thanks for your suggestion - I think you've hit the nail on the head with the Lonicera! Great stuff! :-)

        The first two pic are Lonercia nital with another family member running through it honeysuckle.
        The bottom pic is a hesperantha

          Hi Perki,

          Thanks so much for completing the set! The hesperantha are absolutely lovely at the moment - now I know what they are, I'll definitely invest in a few more :-)

          Thanks again for all your help!

            Hi Silver surfer!

            Thank you for the links - they're really helpful :-) I had another look at the Lonicera pileata this evening and it does have a few very vibrant purple berries - I'll tidy it up and see how it goes next year.

            Thanks to everyone for their help :-)
