I don't know it's name I'm afraid but I pull these out as a weed.

Rose Bay willow herb, weed that spreads quickly, pull out now!

HI THANKS FOR THE INFO ON THE PLANT GEORGE

Are we quite sure about this.

Normally rose bay willow herb has a very large number of tiny flowers on a spire. This plant only seems to have a small number of flowers, and they look quite large to me.

It could be, but I'd feel happier if could get another opinion, please.

Could we have another photo, I am happy to be proved wrong.

Might it be a Great Willow herb rather than a Rose Bay?
I would say it was of the willow herb family and I would pull it one before it seeded everywhere.

That's more like it.

But it would still be nice to see a full length picture, to give some idea of it's size.

It doesn't look as though it's ready to distribute seeds. Rose bay produces lots of fluffy heads, and there doesn't seem to be much sign of anything like them, in the photo we've got.
