    Here we need our resident Euphorbia expert. Hope he's looking in!

    Sorry, forgot to mention the plant is actually growing in the front garden where I live in Düsseldorf but it's pretty unkempt so I don't think it was planted/sown. Took photographs between 22-05-2023 and 05-06-2023.

    I'll throw Euphorbia platyphyllos into the arena for consideration but I don't really know. Can anybody help with the ID please?

    Looks like a comfrey to me but the flowers are so small. Does anybody know the species, please?

    Yes, I've been in touch with some German experts in the botanical world over here. They can only think that it is Anchusa officinalis albino. I don't think we can take it any further. Thanks again for your help and interest

    This rose was growing on the banks of the Rhine in Düsseldorf, flowering on 29 May 2023. Does anybody know the Rose World well enough to ID this one for me, please?

    Looks like a comfrey to me but the flowers are so small. Does anybody know the species, please?

    This was beside a road in an urban area in Düsseldorf, Germany: I began taking photographs on 05 June 2023 and later took some more. The flowers are so small. It's a real puzzle for me. It would be great if somebody could help.

    Plant in Düsseldorf

    Gypsywort is a plant that I know well. I'm pleased that this plant is D. ambrosioides because it is the first time I have recorded it. I'll certainly be looking at it again this year. Thanks for the assistance.

    Plant in Düsseldorf

    I saw this plant on 03-07-2022 on the Rhine foreland in Düsseldorf, an area that can be flooded when the water is high.. There is an interesting mix of plants at this location, most of which I could ID but not this one. Does anybody know what it is, please?

    Is this a Cardamine?

    Many thanks to both of you for your help and interest. As has been written, this is in all probability an atypical C. flexousa.

Has 6 Stamens but can't be Wavy bittercress: Stems not hairy, leaves are not right, seed cases are straight so not curved. Can anyone help withs the ID, please?

    Giant Mullein for ID

    Many thanks together. I feared that that would be the result. I didn't want to tear such a magnificent plant apart to get at the details. Sometimes it's just better to leave them in peace and enjoy their presence. Thanks again. Patrick

    Giant Mullein for ID

    On 12 July 2022 I was in the ancient town of Kaiserswerth on the Rhine close to Düsseldorf. I saw this huge Mullein - more than 2 Metres tall. The bottom leaves are very large and the plant is not downy. Is there one particular sort that grows so tall? I've never before seen one so big. Can...

    What could this yellow plant be

    Thank you so much for your help. I didn't recognise it. Patrick

    What could this yellow plant be

    I should add that this was on 02-06-2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany. A stretch of water is separated from the Rhine by a steeply sloping damm and this is where boots are moored. This plant was on this damm - exposed and can be very sunny, warm, dry. Hope this helps.

    What could this yellow plant be

    I have reduced two more photos which I hope will show a bit more detail

    What could this yellow plant be

    It would be very kind if somebody could ID this yellow plant for me. It may not look like it but it was on a very steep slope, It was not approachable - entry forbidden and physically impossible for me anyway. This was the best photo I could get. Thanks in ant.
