      I do not know what #2 and #4 are, sadly. Very unlike me but San Diego is one of those places where anything will grow (and bloom) if you meet its watering needs, so there is a lot of stuff here that I don’t have a clue about. However, I have a huge gardening library and I’m scouring them for a few minutes each day to try to identify the stuff I have no identity for.

      #3 is a yucca. They are in full bloom right now, and with all the rain we had this winter, they are really putting on a gorgeous display.

    My fiancee goes fishing out at a pond in the woods during the summer and I find a lot of wildflowers that I will photograph and then bring a ‘sample’ back home to identify and then press. However, sometimes I find it hard for some reason to identify them because sometimes the leaves look similar to one another or the color looks similar to another, etc. There are times when I can’t even identify a flower or plant. Number 4’s flower looks remarkable similar to one we have around here, minus the purple branch, which is one of the reasons I asked.

      I learned in forestry classes at Texas A&M University that in order to definitively identify a plant, it’s very helpful to have a flower, a seed, a leaf, a branch, and sometimes a picture of the tree itself. I got fooled occasionally on those plant ID tests, especially in urban forestry class where the excessive heat from pavement can cause the plant to go into a self-defense mode, resulting in strange twists, to leaves and branches especially.
