Two plants to ID please

Postby jvelhino » Fri Sep 16, 2016 11:05 pm

Hi, appreciate your help in identifying these 2 plants. Both are located in the NSW Blue mountains area and the first one seems to be a grass like plant flowering profusely at the moment. The second one is a small tree with pendular branches with small white flowers and just about to finish flowering.

Hi jvelhino. The little strappy leaved plant is a Fringed Iris or Iris japonica which comes from China, Japan & other parts of Asia. Great for filling up spaces & the flowers are exquisite. I can't help with the little tree. A close up of the flowers & foliage would be helpful.
Happy gardening. Val : )

Thank you very much Val. They are gorgeous flowers and they sure filled up the space they're in. I have attached 2 more pics of the small tree. Could it be a native?
Cheers
Jack

I'm sorry I can't help with ID, but that tree is absolutely beautiful. I hope someone can help.
Keep fighting for what you want tomorrow to be!

The tree is in the pea family, fabaceae. I'm not sure what it is , looks a bit like tree lucerne.
