Stuck with another. This time 10 across, 5 letters. Clue is :- loblolly with 9. s????.

Last letter would be m if memo is correct, or possibly an x.

The clue loblolly with 9 doesn't make sense on the face of it. Does clue 9, or the answer help?

Without any further info the only suggestion I have is SPINE as the loblolly is a pine tree but this doesn't fit in with your M or X ???

could it be SALIX. Loblolly is a tree that grows in swamps in southern usa. Salix is another name for Willow which also grows in wetlands.

Yes, Salix looks good to me and it includes the 9!. SAL(IX).
