Hey everyone, we need help identifying a number of plants on the property we just purchased. There are a number we don't recognize so I will upload photos as we take them. It is currently winter where we are so we understand this may be a difficult task at this stage but we are hoping a few of these plants will be familiar to some of you. Any advice or guesses are appreciated. For those plants unable to be identified, we will upload more pictures as spring makes them easier to identify. Thanks so much in advance.

A conifer for 2nd and 3rd photos!



Probably hydrangea or a flower with umbellifer - like this

Last one - some shrub with berries.


This could be brrberis, something like this

Welcome Devon. :) It's difficult for us to identify plants when they are leafless. Perhaps you could post again when they have some foliage please.

Meanwhile I'll take a guess....

Your post number #1
Picture 2......One of the Spruces, Conifer family.
Picture 3......possibly Taxus (Yew) family.
Picture 4..... Sedum (Ice plant)

Post number #2
Picture 1......possibly Berberis Darwinii 'Atropurpurea'
Picture 3......I think there are the remains of berries on this plant so my first thoughts are either Sorbus (Rowan) family, or Elder.

In the Okanagan valley perhaps? That's where we moved from.

No worries, all of BC is stunning so you can't go wrong no matter where you live. :)
