None of them are birds of paradise, someone was confused or something lol. The last ones look like camellias not birds of paradise. someone posted a pic up a few posts of a bird of paradise.

The first pic I uploaded on here is a camellia diagram, the 2nd is a bird of paradise...

Wilmington seems to be a pretty popular place The azaleas here are beautiful, some of the biggest ones I have ever seen. The color selection here is also impressive. The bottom pic kinda looks like it could be a gardenia maybe...they smell wonderful.

Excellent for growing the annual nasturtiums! "nasties" are drought tolerant and LOVE clay soil... as a matter of fact if you plant them in "good" soil they tend to not make very many flowers... give 'em good ol' rocky clay and they make mounds 'n mounds of flowers.

A quick way to "sour" the soil is to dump used coffee grounds between the "drip line" and the crown (the place where the main trunk meets the soil) of the bush. Sprinkle a little dirt on top of the grounds and muddle it up with a rake. Do this weekly for a season and then ease back to monthly. Your azaleas will love it.

Paulownia favor well drained soils and it's home climate is a bit milder than the one you describe, although they will survive in a wide variety of soils and climates. Their root system is a shallow one as far as trees go. Their fabled growth is slower in less well-drained, heavier soils.

Just remember the rule of thirds, when in doubt as to the shock on a plant: never reduce the size of the plant by more than 1/3rd height/width in a single season.

Just some random thoughts ....

You've been to Wilmington lml? I wonder if I've met you before lol....aaaanywayz....Man I love the way gardenia smells, and magnolia! My grandmother used to bring in a big magnolia bloom and put it in a thing of water on her kitchen table, smelled up the whole room! I don't think those are gardenia though. We need an experd, b2w, you don't know what they are? lol The pic I posted is a gardenia.

Yeah that area is awesome. Miss it, lol. I'm going back down there in October I hope, before I start up college again. I was born at Cape Fear Hosp, then I moved around some to Beaufort, Arapaho, back to Wilmington and Ogden, and then out to Rocky Point/Long Creek. I tell you what NC is the best place to be lol. I can't hardly stand the snow up here in the winter. I'll talk my husband into moving back to NC one of these days lol. Oh yeah, do you know if they still have the Waccamaw-Siouan powwow out in Buckhead??

Nope, need a better picture. SO said sumpin' about one of the plants in her pix being a vine... if this one is the vine then clematis is probably it. If it's onna bush, I need a better picture... it could be a camelia, rose or gardenia (although the petals look too fragile to be a gardenia which has very stiff petals).


Picture of white clematis attached.

Gardening rule #1 for all gardeners, before digging or planting, drive around your area and see what is growing well in peoples yards. If someone has a plants for sale sign out front, stop! Buy them, they were grown and do well in your area.
Rule #2. if you live in Ga. for gardening look for drought resistant plants if possible starting out.
Rule #3. break up the red clay throughly and mix it with top soil and some moss before putting the plant into the ground.

Ok finally went out and took pics.. but excuse the pics of the tundra roses (purple flower) becaues they are now dying out for the season... These are all growing wild in my yard.. I'll identify the ones I can for you...

These two are rhubarb which grows wild all over the place.. huge plants of it too.. the one plant you see is about 4 foot right now. Last year it was gigantic, but I dont think it's quite done, as the stalks on it are'nt red yet like the other...

highbush cranberries... when ripe these are a nice dark red and when you boil them down, the juice color is a dark raspberry pink color... they'd be awesome for natural dying.

My guess is these are a type of dandylion, but they are taller, whispier, and minute compared to the other dandylions.

Blackbear Read Asap!!!!!!!

Without seeing the entire life cycle of the plant, I'll give this a 90% confidence in identification. 100% sure it is in the family Ranunculaceae, commonly known as "buttercup".

I am a bit concerned about the top picture (which is why I'm posting from work). It looks to me like it is Aconitum because of the foliage and the flowering habit. The flowers appear to be "not quite right" for that classification, but just in case it is, STAY AWAY from that plant - keep your kids away and keep your dogs away.

If this is Aconitum (also known as wolfbane and the variety you have may be Aconitum v. noveboracense) it is HIGHLY toxic. All parts of it are poisonous and it can kill in a very short period of time. The sap is poisonous and even holding onto a tuber can be toxic. There is no known antidote. I've attached a botanical sketch of leaf, flower and seed to help you in determining if this is the same as what you have.

"Aconitine is one of the strongest plant poisons. At first, it acts as a stimulant but, after that, it paralyzes the nervous system. Doses of 2-5 mg can kill an adult. The symptoms of poisoning are oral paresthesias, abundant salivation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The skin becomes cool, the limbs become insensitive and the pulse accelerates. Death results from respiratory failure and cardiac arrest." http://library.thinkquest.org/C007974/1_1com.htm

I'll post the rest when I get home, I have another infernal meeting to go to.

Close. Arctic dandelions petal clusters are more ovoid - with the petals being of different lengths. The background ones with the oblong leaves, wormy looking fleshy stems and the big poofy seedheads are definitely dandelions.

The ones in the foreground have petals that are all the same length and the branches are upright. If the center really does look like a tightly packed pincushion, bulging up slightly and the foliage is wispy/string-like then these are chamomile (yeah, they make the tea out of the dried flowers).
