We were at a quiz tonight, won it of course, and won this flower arrangement in the raffle. Can only identify four things. The lilac ones are roses, some eucalyptus leaves, fuschia and apples on sticks. Particularly interested in the purple one at the bottom right and bottom centre of the picture. Any ideas anyone.

Need better close ups to be sure!

Looks like Leycesteria.

Orange ones look like Gerbera.

Not Buddleia anyway as I would know that one. Plus these flowers are much darker. I think SS is on the right track though, as usual, I seem to remember that pheasant berry came up on here a few months back. I will do a few close ups with the flash switched on this time when I get home this evening.

You can zoom in on a phone. Or else I could resize them. Used that daft app good guy is always raving about and it over shrunk them.

That simple resize app is a disaster. If only it showed the actual size of the photo in megabytes instead of a percentage of its size then it would be far better. I tried resizing several times in small increments to no avail. Conscious that the more I shrunk it the smaller the picture would be. It is pure guesswork trying to figure out when the photo is less than 1mb. I would have been far quicker getting the laptop out of the car and doing it the normal way, by compressing it instead.

Oh yes..Silver surfer misses nothing on Plant id...unless I happen to be away.
If I am quiet it is because I do not know for sure.
I am not good on prickly house plant type plants.
Hopeless on grasses and not very confident on cacti/succulents.
Sorry.

Hmm!
This simple resize app...is this what everyone calls progress?
Guess that you found a new way to pass a few hours!
Sorry you are having so much bother.

@SS.

Progress? Definitely not, backways if anything. Done the resizing my own way this morning so these should be OK. If you copy and paste the previous photos onto your desktop and open them from there then you can make them bigger.

I tried copying your pics and enlarging on my computer.
Completely hopeless!

New pics...perfect ...thanks.

1. I was correct with Leycesteria in berry

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/01/8f/c7/018fc734827e5b3352e2fb2fefd11cfd.jpg

The flower like Lilac roses are not roses but Eustoma syn Lisianthus.
Looks very carefully at the buds.
Notice how they are folded in a twisted shape...Rose buds do not do that.
Calyx also very different.

2. and 3. Orange Gerbera.

3. Yellow...Solidago...Golden rod.

P.S. If nothing else I hope that I am getting the good folk here to LOOK.....really look.
The clues are often there if people just take time to look and not guess.

If people would just check on www to see if their answers look correct ...then wild guess that are miles out would be reduced.

Genuine errors and mistakes we all make!

Tagwex...you assumed the lilac flowers were roses...because you have never really looked at a rose.

Hope my pointers have helped.
Cheers
S.S.
