The first one looks like Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans). Fourth one is a Lantana. Not sure about the other two, but someone will spot your post and ID them also!

Welcome! to All Things Plants!

Can you tell us a bit about the climate where these are growing? You don't have to give your city, state or country but it sometimes helps to narrow down when we know a bit about what part of the world they are growing, for instance Southeastern United States, Pacific Northwest, Southwest U.S., Australia, Great Britian, etc. Green Grin! That being said, I agree with Bubbles about #1.

#1 is definitely Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans)

#2 & #3 look familiar to me but at the moment I can't think of the name of the plant I'm thinking of.

#4, #5, #6 are Lantana (Lantana camara)

Yes I am in Sanderson Florida which I have been told is Zone 8 or some say 8B. Hope this helps and appreciate all the help. I am just moving to this new property and there are so many plants and flowers around and I have no idea what they are. i am starting a butterfly garden and when I see native flowers and plants I like to know about them and if they are beneficial. hope everyone does not get sick of me asking, but if you dont't ask you'll never know I guess Hurray!

You've come to the right place! Don't worry ... no one will get sick of you asking questions, we all ask questions of each other all the time around here. Green Grin! We have great members who are always friendly and helpful. I've had so many folks here that have helped me with plant identifications and soil issues etc. so ask away!

We have many members who live in the northern part of Florida so maybe someone will come along shortly and be able to help with ID's for plants #2 & 3.

Good eye Jay, photo #2 does look like it might be Meadow Beauty! There are a few varieties found in Florida but I wonder if it could be Pale Meadow Beauty, R. mariana?

Pale Meadow Beauty (Rhexia mariana) is a Florida native!

@MHIGDON I believe by spent, he means no longer blooming or "dead."

If you want to ask a question of a particular member and make sure they receive the message you can hit the @ key and the person's name at the beginning of your message. It will alert that person that you're asking him a question or responding to his question. Hope that helps.

Oh I did not know that. I am new to forums as well. Never really been on them, they can be a little intimidating for sure. Hope I do not offend or upset anyone until I get familiar. Thanks for the tips, all advice is greatly appreciated

For comparison, I found these photo's showing Rhexia mariana with buds, opened blooms and a couple of fading (spent) blooms:

Sandi is correct. I meant that the blooms are dead or faded, petals have wilted or in this case fallen off. Meadow Beauty petal drop easily once they are done.

Welcome! MHIGDON,
Something caught my eye when you said:

MHIGDON said: I am in Sanderson Florida....I am starting a butterfly garden and when I see native flowers and plants I like to know about them and if they are beneficial.


We have an AT member (melllielong) who volunteers for the MOSI at the butterfly house. Since you are in Florida, andhave some Lantana that are not native you should know the plants can get out of hand. You can decide for yourself but here is a link about Lantana/butterflies/Florida; hope it helps. http://lepcurious.blogspot.com/2011/11/lantana-love-it-or-le...

Yeah, Lantana (Lantana camara) is extremely invasive here in Florida. It has gorgeous blooms that are highly attractive to Butterflies, Skippers and even Hummingbirds but they are near impossible to eradicate once they get established (which doesn't take long!) so it's best to plant alternative sterile varieties of Lantana: http://www.floridainvasives.org/keys/LantanacamaraSterileCul...

Welcome!!
After digging Lantana out of my front bed at least three times, I now keep it in a pot in the back bed. I think I noticed a new sprig in the front bed again as I was mowing the other day.

They sell Lantana camara at all the big box stores here; Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart; but then again, I see a lot of invasive plants being sold at those stores ... there should be a law against it. Another that I see for sale all the time, listed as a Florida Category I non-native invasive is Mexican Petunia (Ruellia simplex)

My mom has a wild variety of Lantana camara and plants pop up in my yard all the time. The cultivated varieties that I have purchase at big box stores have not reproduced at all.

When you call a member by putting the @ in front of their screen name you have to make sure to put it exactly as they have their screen name listed. In this case Bubbles has it with a capital B so putting @bubbles doesn't call her but putting @Bubbles DOES call her. I just thought you would like to know that lest you call us & we don't answer Hilarious! Hilarious! Just always double check.

I've found this site to be a tremendous help when trying to ID some of our wildflowers.

But you can always ask us too! Smiling
