Hi all while i was out digging today i am across these two plants growing by the side of my fence not sure what they are or where they came from i have dug them up and put them in my rockery boarder just in case they are worth keeping.
plant 2 has little purple flowers sprouting and the roots are like tubes any help is appreciated thanks
not sure but looks like herb Robert which has a bit smell to it as you pull it up and grows everywhere (weed) little pink flowers but then it looks like dianthus bleeding hearts in fact I think am wrong.
I think the first is Astilbe?
I agree. The first one is an Astilbe. Sorry don't know the second but someone will...
The first one could well be Astilbe
The second one is familiar but my brain is addled by Saharan Dust - it's not a weed, I do know that much, so look after it and someone will come along and identify it.
The second one looks like an anemone, not sure which one.
The top one might be an Actaea.
I think the second could be a dicentra but not the big bleeding heart.
D. eximia or formosa or one of the hybrids. If it is it's not one for a hot dry rockery
Not necessarily this one but that sort of thing
I should think so Mikey, I had some in pots all last summer because I didn't get round to planting out. Keep it in the shade
Ditto the first, astilbe or actaea, they don't do hot and dry
agreed nut and flowering rose. 2 is Bleeding Heart Dicentra formosa
1.An Astilbe, probably.
2. Agree with Nut it is a Dicentra probably cuccularia
2. Agree with Nut it is a Dicentra probably cuccularia. I suppose we should not call them Dicentra anymore, as they have been renamed Lamprocapnos.
I knew I recognised it! My Dicentra just peeked through the soil surface today.
First one is Astilbe, could have white, pink or deep red flowers. Second one looks like a purple daisy but can't remember its name
