Once again I have to display my appalling lack of knowledge of flora. Someone suggested to me that this is alstibe, but I’m not sure it looks the same. Can anyone help? Common coastal wildflower.

The pink one at the front looks like Red Valerian, centranthus ruber, we have a lot around the Irish coast here in West Cork. I may be wrong its a bit blured.

Andy.

Both Centranthus ruber.  You've got the red and pink forms.  There's also a white form.

That stuff is as common as much around me as well - I had to google it a couple of weeks ago for shots I was putting on Flickr

It's growing out of our patio.

I may pull it up when it's done flowering. Could be a pic in it.

Any idea? A tree outside Corsham Court, Wiltshire recently.

 

Think I have found this one. 

Catalpa bignonioides 'Aurea'

John would have a look at the tree image in this thread please to see if you may know it.

Hi Geogphotos,

 

Could be Sea lavender (Limonium vulgare), but I'm no expert

If it helps people my first stop for identifying wildflowers is  http://www.npms.org.uk/sites/www.npms.org.uk/files/PDF/NPMS ID GUIDE_WEB_0.pdf  It may not get you straight there but it often puts you in the rough ballpark area to do more detailed searches on google. 

 

Thanks for this. It is very helpful because it does the obvious thing to help amateurs and arranges the plants by flower colour. 

 

Just found: Prickly oxtongue, Helminthotheca echoes, Picris echiodes,
