Post Just leaves.
I have been accused of not having enough flowers in my garden; of being obsessed with leaves; of having lots of leaves that all look the same.

I replied that many on this forum at least would be able to ID a lot of my plants form a single leaf.

The challenge has been set.

The number follows each picture. I think most can be ID'd to genus easily, some to species or even variety.

Up for a foliar quiz? Updated with ID's on 16.07.17

Image
1. Salvia patens 'Giant Form'


Image
2. Dahlia aff tubulata; or aff pteropoda or sp. nova or [not yet formalised] tamaulipana


Image
3. Gynura cusimbua

Image
4. Schefflera taiwaniana


Image
5. Schefflera enneaphylla

Image
6. Fatsia polycarpa Edward Needham form

Image
7. Hydrangea aspera 'Hot Chocolate'

Image
8. Inula magnifica

Image
9. Cotinus 'Grace'

Image
10. Lysimachia ciliate 'Firecracker'


Image
11. Canna 'Cleopatra'


Image
12. Hydrangea aspera 'from Gongshan'

Image
13. Podachaenium eminens

Image
14. Roldana aschenborniana

Image
15. Rojasianthe superba

Image
16. Arisaema costatum

Image
17. Dahlia foeniculifolia

Image
18. Thunbergia gregorii

Image
19. Manihot grahamii

Image
20. Bocconia frutescens

Image
21. Callianthe tridens [AKA Abutilon tridens]

Image
22. Trevesia palmata


Image
23. Solanum quitoensis

Image
24. Solanum pyracanthum

Image
25. Anthriscus sylvestris 'Ravenswing'

Image
26. Aralia elata 'Variegata'

Image
27. Neolitsea sericea

Image
28. Begonia sizemoreae

Image
29. Calceolaria pavonii

Image
30. Aloe arborescens 'Variegata'

Please don't let me down!

ID just one at a time, or at once, but please show me I'm not alone in 'knowing leaves'.

Chad.

23 is Solanum pyracanthum. I had that years ago,short lived. 20 is Boconia- nice score too. I had it..and it died when I dug it up for a "better" spot. I wouldn't mind a new try.
Is the last Aloe arborescens variegated?..Its Aloe for sure.

Actually I don't wish to be a teachers pet and upset Mo but 23 is Solanum quitoensis and 24 is Solanum pyracanthum. No7 could be Salix magnifica and 21 Idesia polycarpa?

Post Re: Just leaves.
I've been told off by e-mail for making this too difficult because

1. Some of the plants are only common in my garden, and
2. My photo's are rubbish! Texture just isn't 'coming through'.

So I'll help out a bit. I'll update the list as we score them off. Kev is on a roll. 16 Arisaema costatum is right; but not 1.Persicaria [look carefully; it has a square stem - OK not visible - but it has].
Andy is right with the Solanums and the Manihot. My pictures are misleading for 7 and 21. Both are soft leaved with a bit of down on them.

2. Has been discussed on this board.

7. and 12 are the same species but different varieties. 7 is widely distributed, 12 only through 'specialist' nurseries.

13. Is Podachaenium eminens.

14. Was in flower at Tregrehan - yellow daisies.

15 is Rojasianthe superba

17 is the same genus as 2.

18 has flowers in it to help you out.

21 is Callianthe tridens [AKA Abutilon tridens] - love the 'drip tip'; I haven't flowered it yet.

25 is herbaceous and common [and I doubt if it is known in USA].

27 has been posted about by Stan before.

29 is sold by Charlie, so he should recognise it!

Chad.

18 maybe a Tropaeolum species? That's what the flowers made me think of.

I'll have a stab at a couple.

2. Dahlia tubulata
4 Schefflera taiwaniana
7. Itoa
17 - if it is the same genus as 2 then I don't know but it looks like the dissected Sonchus!
25 - Sambucus 'Black Lace' or similar
29 - That shrubby Calceolaria but I forget the species.
