Have you got any pics of it before it drooped lily?

19/04/2014 at 19:32

Could it be a trillium.  Pop round next and ask them.

19/04/2014 at 19:35

Doesn't look like a trillium to me http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trillium_reliquum

No sorry nut, when I pulled it out I thought  it was a weed. then had second thoughts lol.

Neighbours will prob not know what it is, they only moved in a couple of months ago.

Could it be a hellibore?

19/04/2014 at 19:58

Leaves are very thin, my hellebores leaves are thick compared to those.

There are similarities to some of the hardy geraniums ..............

The red stems, plus the wiry type of growth resembles one of the wood sorrels.. Oxalis.  Some have a dip at the top of the leaves, like a lovers heart.  Some are lacking this.  Might be an avenue worth checking.

Did google geraniums, Dove, some do look simular.

Mike, will have a look.

19/04/2014 at 22:00

Mmm, don't think its that. I'll keep watering it and hope it picks up. Then take another pic. Thanks so far.

19/04/2014 at 22:00

Try Geranium nodosum. The leaves look a bit dark to me but it could be the light

19/04/2014 at 22:12

Nut, I think you and Dove are right, they do look very simular to some of them. I do have a hardy geranium with blue flowers, the leaves look a bit 'furry' thought it was called johnsons blue, but according to web i'm not so sure now. Will keep watering the one in pot and see what happens. Thank you everyone.

Mike good to see you, and thank you. Hope all went well today. Very best wishes.x

Just playing with the internet and these came up Kudzu vine or achlys trphyllaor , also ipomea hederacea (ivy leaf morning glory).

I'll stop playing now and get my coat...

26/04/2014 at 17:25

Do I see flower buds on the top one?

I still think it is a geranium

26/04/2014 at 17:30

Hoping one of you is right,  MrsG,  nut, both are pretty, really don't want it to be a weed.

Would love it to be morning glory, as I want one of those.
