I wonder if I could engage some interest in helping me identify
some trees and a flowering plant?
I'm in SW Idaho-Sunset Western Garden Book says I'm 2B although
most seed packages will tell me I'm in zone 5-6.
I recently moved to some acreage with some well established
grounds. Most of the stuff here is at least 70 years old and
very well established although, we bought it as an estate from
some deceased owners in their 90's and it's been empty and neglected
for some time.
I've identified a lot of things so far but there are a few trees
and one plant so far that eludes me.
I've taken photos of each one with a closeup of each and all of
these are recent photos as in last week.
Some additional information:
We've had an unusually cold spring and most of our things are
experiencing a later than usual bloom.
The deep red tree is easily 80 feet tall which I neglected to
mention on the Photobucket site.
The "Stinky Tree” bears an bit more of an explanation.
It reeks. I mean really, really stinks. It smells like fish
emulsion and the first time I smelled it inside I thought it
was the new carpet outgassing that was causing it!
I’ve never smelled its equal.
The Huge Weird Shrub is something I’ve seen all over the place
but mostly pruned to look more like a tree, unlike this one
with all the twisting multiple branches which I quite like.
Here is the link with the photos I’ve uploaded and I would sure
appreciate anyone taking a guess at what these might be.
