I just go round the clump with a sharp spade in spring to keep the clump in place.
Now i can see it more clearly it does look like a Scrophularia species.
Many of them actually have sweet scented flowers.
Would like to see a clearer image, but the flowers look like Impatiens capensis.
A plant I spend a great deal of time weeding out. Also comes in deeper pink (Dr Hanele) and white.
Wishful thinking. The roots can go down as much as 30 feet. (Saw this at a Quarry in Derbyshire once). Very difficult stuff to get rid off, sorry.
Second one looks more like Teasel than Poppy.
Is it Frisia?
Possibly Viburnum tinus under attack form Viburnum beetle.
Rather nice Deutzia. Lots of different ones.
