Quiz 2: Name this plant
Plants

Test your gardening knowledge in our GARDENS ILLUSTRATED quiz. Each week we'll post a new quiz and you'll be asked to identify a seasonal plant, give its origins, history, cultivation and indicate how best to propagate it. Once you've completed the five questions about this particular plant, we'll give you details about how to grow it successfully in your garden. There's no prize but we hope that throughout the year it's a fun way to learn more about a whole host of garden plants.
