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-1


 Plant-2


 


 plant 2 has little purple flowers sprouting and the roots are like tubes any help is appreciated thanks

flowering rose

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.

Green Fingered Mikey
Thanks for replying flowering rose I have looked at imagies of both herb robert and dianthus I am still none the wiser lol the leaves and stems look very simular on both I am leaning more to the herb robert but will need to wait for the flower to fully bloom to see if it opens up like herb robert or dangles like the dianthus hopefully others might be able to confirm.Plant 1 I am struggling to find any images to match but still searching thanks again

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.

Green Fingered Mikey
Thanks all I will compare image's to the first one with the identifications given, Thanks Dove glad it's not a weed and glad I decided to save them
Green Fingered Mikey
Thanks for that nut will I be ok to put it in a big flower pot till my boarders are done ?

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

Green Fingered Mikey
Thanks all two new plants for keeps then funny thing is is how they got there at first I thought maybe next door but they have no plants in there back garden and I have had no plants in my garden for years just grass so its a bonus.

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
