Mr. Smarty Plants loves to identify plants. However, it is very difficult to identify plants by description alone, especially since we specialize in native plants of North America and you are in England! However, if you could you send us photographs, we would certainly give it a try. For instructions on how to submit photographs, please visit the Ask Mr. Smarty Plants page and read about "Plant Identifcation" in the lower right corner.
