ID & Replanting Advice: Various Plants - Eastern Melb

Postby Patsmanpost » Sat Oct 19, 2013 4:21 pm

Hi Everyone,

I have a number of plants in my garden that I'd like to ID, and also know if they can be moved and replanted elsewhere.
Any information or advice you could give about these plants would be awesome.

#2

I can help with it is leopard plant/farfugium japonica.

I grow it and it likes the shade.It is a tuber,almost succulentlike ...I chop pieces off it all the time, it should really have yellow spots,yours are missing and so are mine,I am experimenting...in the sun...in the shade but spots are not showing, maybe the soil.
The leaves are my favourite part, it does have a spike with yellow daisy flowers a couple of times throughout the year.

#1 Dietes, I think.
#3 Maidenhair Fern.
#6 Cineraria ?
#7 Pelagonium .

5 may be Rex Begonia.

Most, if not all, could be moved to other places in the garden with little difficulty, but with some care in preparing the new garden/s and lifting the plant with as much root as possible. If possible, try to dig the plant out with the roots still surrounded by soil to lessen shock. Water-in well and keep the soil just moist. The pelagonium ("Geranium") does not like a lot of water.

I haven't seen any flowers from that one, but it's pretty well buried behind all of the plants with the flowers.

It looks similar to Cineraria 'silver dust',

#4 could be a begonia, but I've also seen a succulent that looks similar.

A closer photo of the flower would tell.

A better photo of #5 would be good too.
