I have thought about this, and here are my conclusions.
The problem with the question was not that it is off-topic. It was both overly broad with the list of plants, and there was not enough information to answer the question confidently. It should have been closed as "Not a Real Question", and the OP should perhaps have been prompted to break it up into individual questions, and to provide additional information to allow a taxonomist to identify the plants.
Plant identification, and species identification questions fall clearly under taxonomy, so until there is a site dedicated to taxonomy they should not be migrated, as stated by Marta Cz-C.
Unless they are directly related to gardening (pests, weeds, etc.) it should not be migrated there. I agree with Richard Smith that sending questions to gardening that are off-topic for them (or worse) is harmful to their site.
