The first one almost looks like some kind of lavendar???? Duh

And the second one almost looks like a dandelion..
*but wait to see if you get any other identifiers', if not, I'd like some different angle shots' of that last one, like how it comes out of the ground, ie: one stalk or several, and what the top~down looks like????*

The first one reminds me of one of my varieties of Yarrow.
The second does look a bit like dandelion except for its size. Do you have another picture?

could it be some sort of dandelion? I mean, in France, they grow a special variety that has leaves that are erect instead of making a rossette on the ground, they use it for sala di think!
The first pic, not sure if it's the way it was taken or the angel, but the leaves look like they're fleshy, maybe some sort of succulent? looks a bit plastic-y to me

Hi everyone...

i got da first from a local Agricultural Research Station...no name tag n i didnt ask... Kenny, tho da leaves r shiny they r not thick n not succulent... n they r rather strongly fragrant...

Da second... my hubby brought back some seeds n told me they were flowers...said he got 'em from his Chinese friend...it was only much, much later when da plant has grown this large that he told me that his Chinese friend always pick da leaves (+another kind of herb) to add to thier soup...emm i wonder if it can b cooked s a vegetable dish s well? Have not tried yet....

May b when it has flowered i can snap another pic n post here...

betty, can you take another pic? the light from the window makes it too dark...also, move it away from the window - or take a pic at night with artificial light.

also, you might want to start a new thread for it smile

we can't split it, but if you repost in a new thread, we'll delete this one from here.

Alba I think the first one is lavender too! If you rub the leaves and your fingers and leaves smell kinda like oregano rosemary or sage it's very possible it's a variety of lavender!!

Look at the leaves on this one!

Hi - I think #1 is "lavender cotton" (Santolina chamaecyparissus). Greyish foliage, yellow "button-like" flowers.
Perhaps #2 is some sort of acanthus?

Also - to bettyboop1948: could we be seeing a dracaena here?

best regards, Saintlorilea
