Neighbourhood walk

Took a spontaneous walk through a neighbourhood Ruelle Vert on the way back home from the library last weekend and took some snapshots (The Ruelle Verte is a municipal initiative to green and make generally more attractive the many alleyways in the city).

Hello kitty!

White Snakeroot - Ageratina altissima


Passionflower vine 







Nasturtium


Brugmansia 




Elephant Ear

An elephant ear of some kind. The plant sent out long runners all over the place. It also had what I am guessing are seed pods that gradually filled with some mucilaginous goo as they ripened. I touched one lightly and it fell right off the plant.






Helenium

Leaving the Ruelle Verte


I also passed by Laloux, a French bistro with great food and some nice flower boxes.

  1. I can help with identifying a few of your plant questions. The yellow-flowered daisy like one is Helenium, a perennial; the red one with black-blue berries IS indeed lantana; and the one with the little lavender flowers and green-gold foliage is Bacopa/Sutera, looks like 'Copia Golden Leaves' but I can't be sure if the foliage is variegated or not.
