    Help please.
    Can anyone tell me what this plant is? I've had the seeds in the freezer for over 10 years, but the name is so smudged, I can't read it. Planted some this year, without much hope of them germinating, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. (sorry, I'm not a great photographer)

    1st pic - the plant; currently about 2 1/2 feet high.
    2nd pic - a close up of one of the flowers

    I finally have a small pumpkin growing! I only had one plant thats about 30 feet now. All it had were male flowers but then finally a female flower arrived :D that I had to pollinate. I think I can count on one hand how many bees have been around this summer.

    The perennial plant in your pic is known as '4 o clock' for the simple reason that it open at that time, and then closes. The flowers come in different colours, and the one I have is called the 'marvel of Peru with a variegated yellow and red flower.

    Thank you so much. I thought it was the '4 o'clock plant', but when I looked that up, couldn't find anything.
    So thanks again. Now I can label it up & find all the particulars. You're a peach.

    ^ awwwwwww, that is the nicest thing anyone has said to me on this forum

    4 o clock is one of the most reliable plants in the yard. I planted it at 2 different homes I owned from seeds, and as long as you start it early indoors, you are bound to get a lovely plant by mid-late summer. I star all my plants and veggies indoors under fluorescent lights.

    Butterflies and hummingbirds love it

    I was going to say that's a nicotiana. I can't believe seeds germinated after 10 years wow!

    If you look closely at the leaves, without even considering when the flowers close / open, you will see there is a slight different between the 4 o clocks and the Nicotiana.

    I have grown tomato seeds that were preserved for years. It's all in the preservation process really

    Hard to really see up close due to the way the pic is taken. My guess is one of the following:

    1. Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa)

    2. Goji

    3. Elderberry

    4. if it has a captivating fragrance, then it could be Sarcococca

    @A273.....what you have is known as the "Potato Stem Borer" (3 1/2" long, and pinkish-white in colour) that bores into the rhubarb stalks. The eggs are laid in Aug at the stem of the grasses, and then hatch in the Spring.

    The way to eradicate this issue is to control the weed around your rhubarb plants.
