That  is what I would have said, Wall Pennywort. My favourite wild plant, wish it would grow in my wall.

Personally I would keep it planted. I have it growing in the rock garden and it stays there all year round without being disturbed.

They also can cause a certain amount of distortion to stems on susceptible plants. I certainly do not allow them to stay on plants in the Greenhouse.

They are sap suckers so while one on a plant may do little harm, a major infestation would weaken the plant.

And you often get self sown seedlings all over the place too.

Interesting point about leaving the seed heads.

They flower after the leaves have done their job and begun to die. In fact the flower stem is almost disconnected from the bulb altogether,
