I planted some seeds directly in my garden but what has come up is not what I sowed! Any idea what it is please? I'm in the UK. [more inside]
I've been gardening and hiking in the Pacific Northwest for a long time, but I have never seen this flower. It was growing on a moist, shady bank under oak trees. What is it?
What is this flower? It's been identified as a yellow lupine, but my better half doubts it and wants a second opinion. Since I don't know any group of people more opinionated that Mefites, here we are.
What's this weed? We have these growing in the yard (I am in Baltimore, MD) and the wife thinks they are beautiful. We just can't tell what it is.
My wife brought home this flower, which looks sort of like a fuzzy ear of corn made out of cotton on some very spiky leaves. Any hints on what it is? I've used online resources to no avail.
What is this tree and seed (nut?)? Eight or nine feet tall, growing next to a sidewalk and clearly intentionally planted. That seed is marble- or dime-sized, and I just picked this Friday, so it would have to be fruiting now in Austin, Texas. Don't worry, I'm not going to eat it. Just curious. Thanks!
A plant appeared next to my tomato plant in a balcony box and I'd like to know what exactly it is. [more inside]

I'm curious to know what this plant is - it's growing in an alley in Washington, D.C.
My sweet, long-distance boyfriend sent me a surprise bouquet of flowers! The flowers are beautiful, but I want to make sure that they're safe for my cat, Ada. I don't think they're unusual flowers, but I know basically nothing about plants, so I would like some help identifying them. Photos inside! [more inside]

I just bought a new home in Dallas Tx. In our kitchen right where the kitchen table is we have a big window that looks out to our neighbors house where there is a air conditioner unit. Im looking for a relatively inexpensive bush/plant/flower to put there that will grow and live all year round that will add a more pleasant view than an AC unit. Suggestions? House faces North/ South. Also looking for the option that requires the least maintenance.
Florists, gardeners, green-thumbs, I have a floral ceiling medallion that I want to paint in pastel colors. Link to imgur album. I know these might not be real flowers but what do they remind you of? [more inside]
Can anyone ID this plant that spontaneously grew in one of the pots on my terrace? I'm in Spain, if tht helps. http://imgur.com/ycqyStw
Image is here. I'm in Northern California (Bay Area) if that helps to clarify.
This shrub is in full bloom now in Portland, Oregon. It is tall and rangy. I've been here thirty years and have been an avid gardener, and I'd never seen it before today.
I bought this plant from the florists but it didn't come with a tag so I don't know how often to water it. Can anyone identify it? Thanks!
After some great success with a lavender and blueberry sauce I was thinking it would be fun to have a whole party based around flower/flowering food and drink. I've got blooming flower tea and rose-infused vodka on the list, and my local market occasionally sells edible flowers around this time of year - but what are some other flower-based dishes I should be looking at? What should I be looking out for in terms of safety and not accidentally poisoning my guests? What kind of springtime courses would be in season? (For the sake of my sanity I'm going to try for buffet style small plates) And is there anyplace online or in the NYC area that specializes in edible flowers? [more inside]
Some neighbor dropped off this flowering plant (picture 1, picture 2), and I'm trying to figure out what it is, and (BONUS QUESTION) whether it's toxic to the cats. Little four-petalled yellow flowers, thick waxy-feeling leaves, roughly a foot tall in its pot. Okay thanks for reading, for your time here's a nice pic of Thunder Perfect Cat on cat tranquilizers
Every now and then this incredibly gorgeous floral fragrance wafts into our house, and I always thought it was a neighbor spraying on scent at a time when the breeze currents are just right for it to drift our way, but when I mentioned that I wished I knew what brand of perfume it is, my husband said that, no, it is actually a flower (or flowering vine), because he's seen and smelled it before, but he doesn't know what sort of plant it is, or remember what it looks like. I'd love some suggestions about what it might be. I'm sure it's not Jasmine, unless it's some specific type I'm not familiar with. We're in Greece. [more inside]

In the book I'm translating, the author lists a number of wildflowers. I need to find the botanic name of one of them, but he (or his agent) doesn't reply to my questions. Here's hoping AskMe can help. [more inside]
It's growing wild. Smells very unique - hard to put down exactly but some far away notes of maybe oregano/nasturtium - but that's just a guess. The whole plant/flower is soft. It grows among the thistles, tall grasses and other assortments including nettles and cleavers. The flower itself is a pink/purple with white streaks. Photos Here
