Need Help with Plant ID

norabelle(5)May 9, 2009

Hi, Everyone,

I have some returning perennials that I cannot remember or identify.

I know the first image is almost too blurry, but I thought someone might now the shape. They emerge as purplish-green spikes and the leaves begin to unfurl when the spike is 1 and 1/2 to 2 inches.

I think plant #3 is Cupid's Dart, but I am not positive. Also, I cannot seem to find the Evening Primrose I received from my grandmother's garden before we sold my grandparents' home. Is plant #2 Evening Primrose by any chance? It appears around the location I planted it last year. If anyone has a picture of Evening Primrose plants emerging, I would be grateful.

All input is greatly appreciated!

I aplogize for the large images. I cannot figure out how to make them smaller or make them thumbnails to click. I have looked at and tried to recreate the adding pictures directions provided by GW, but I am having problems.

Hmmm, #2 does look like evening primrose, #3 reminds me of bachelor buttons. #4 looks like dianthus. Anyway that's my best guess.

Thank you for your input. I did plant dianthus last year, but the kind I have looks different and I have huge clumps. I have only one surviving clump of this. However, I could have planted a couple versions of dianthus.
I need to go back and look at my list from last year to see if I planted more than one variety. Thanks again!

cheers, Nora Belle

seedlingid005.jpg looks like my Cupid's Dart.

The last picture is dianthus.
