Help me, botanists

…you’re my only hope.

I don’t know where to go about finding out what these plants are called. Do you know where I should look?

What kind of plant is this?

  1. So #3 is probably Genista monspessulana AKA French broom, and #2 is most likely Cercis siliquastrum AKA Judas tree, which takes its name from the κερκις, or weaver’s shuttle, to which Theophrastus likened it in his Enquiry into Plants.

    And #1 may be Lamium album AKA white deadnettle, also known as the bee nettle. Or it may not.

  2. I concur with your identification of #1 as a Lamium, and #2 as a Cercis. I had no idea Cercis as a genus was so widespread! Not sure of the other two, though #4 is really pretty.
