I love plants but blimey, I'm woefully ignorant of their names. Viewing these pictures can anyone place names to the plants. Would be much obliged if you could. Thanks. Oh yea, and please don't say "grass" or "tree" as I'm not that dumb.

Thanks Kat, thanks Nancy. A friend of mine saw the pictures and agreed with both your responses. She was also able to name the little plant left of the Philodendron as a "Mother In-law's Tongue" and also the plant with the Philodendron as possibly "Purslane" but she wasn't to sure. Anyway thank you both for your help I can sleep peacefully now.

The 3rd (i.e. last one) is bougainvillea. The second one is a common tropical vine that is super common but the name alludes me.

#3 Bougainvillea.  The bright;y colored bracts are not really flowers but leaves. The flowers are inside the bracts.  Watch out for thorns when pruning.

#2 Philodendron.  A very common leafy vine houseplant.  If properly cared for it can thrive for decades.

#1 Might be a Dracena.  There are many different types of dracenas.

The clover leaf shaped ground cover next to your dracena in #1 looks like oxalis.   In march, you sometimes see it sold in stores as a "shamrock" plant. 

Mother-in-law tongue or snake plant is a very fast spreading succulent requiring almost no care.   I prefer to keep that one in pots because it will take over your garden.

The PlantNet app was made for you, just shoot the plant and it will give you the answer: PlantNet Plant Identification - Android Apps on Google Play

It's a kind of Shazam, but it recognizes plants.

Yes. Nancy, we have both Dracena Fragrans and Heartleaf Philodendron that are decades old, and thriving.


1. Dracena Fragrans

2. Heartleaf Philodendron

3. Bougainvillea

I hope this is helpful to you Cactus Cowboy.

JR, the PlantNet app sounds great!

Have a great day everyone!

Best regards,

What kind of grass is this? I think it's St. Augustine but then again it could be Johnson grass...I just don't know. I know that it has runners and they have nodes that sprout the blades and roots from. Anyone have any idea?

It's called Kukua but I've always called it couch grass.  It's  very common in California and Arizona  because it's hardy, drought tolerant and spreads outward from plugs almost like a vine.    Golfers hate Kukua grass because it grabs the club and makes accurate short shots to the green almost impossible to hit.  

EDIT:  I forgot to mention Kikuyu or Kukua grass is highly invasive & considered a federal noxious weed.  Its sale is prohibited in most US States except Arizona, Hawaii and certain counties in California.  And no, Trevor, it's not something you would want to smoke.

I'm a plant person.  I've been growing things since I was a little kid.

At one time, I had a fantastic avocado tree  that I cultivated from 2 pits in a glass of water.

I - like Nancy - am a plant person. It is what keeps me sane and connected in many ways. A gardener of wild plants, edible plants, bee attracting plants, hummingbird plants and any excuse to dig in the dirt. Do not have a mind for names so this causes confusion when talking to other plant persons but show me a picture and I can tell you the growing conditions, etc...

Joy in the green and growing things! It's in the gene as I am a farmer's daughter.

Okay, Nancy, I've got one for you. Most likely this is some type of sage, but if so what type is it? Or is it even a sage?

Sorry I can't help you name this plant Chuck, I'm anxious to find out what it is too. BTW, like that picture you took of it. Nice bright color and sharp as a tack what camera did you use? Hey Nancy, you sure weren't kidding about that bougainvillea plant and it's thorns they're huge in some spots and hidden by the leaves; got stuck by one and it hurt and itched the whole day. It must leave some kind of poison in the wound. I put some gloves on after that.

No great camera, just my Galaxy S8 cell phone. Yea, those bougainvilleas have big sharp thorns! I just planted one along with some nice thorny berry vines. Going to be fun come pruning time! Made some trellises, today, to attempt to keep them in control.

Hey that's neat I need to put one of those together as well. Man, that Galaxy S8 sure has a nice camera. As powerful as phones are becoming particularly their cameras I don't think that they will be the downfall of tradition cameras or maybe they will I don't know what do you think?

I don't think they'll take the place of regular cameras, but there are sure taking a chunk out of the market. I use mine all the time, except when I need to do something that it just can't handle. They are amazing though!

Chuck,

Does the flower emit any resin or fragrance?  Do bees like it?  I'm pretty sure it's not sage.

It looks more like a coastal succulent to me.  But I have no idea which one.

I'm not sure if the flower itself emits anything, but the whole plant in general is very fragrant. I think bees like it. It was growing behind my house, but they just cleared the land for fire prevention. It is starting to come back though. Maybe when it grows back enough, I'll take a sample over to Cal Poly's botany department. Here's a few more shots of it.

It's probably Milkweed.  Butterflies and caterpillars like it a lot.

Do you have an Armstrong plant center near you?

I don't think so. There's one down in LA, close to where I used to live.
