Crampe (flowering sea kale)

Like many large perennials it takes a few years to develop to it's full magnificence ... the RHS website suggests 2-5 years to ultimate height https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/4709/Crambe-cordifolia/Details 

weed or flower

That being said, willow herb seeds prolifically and is highly invasive ... Most Gardeners yank it out at first sight unless they have a very large wild-style garden which can accommodate it.

Well, I s'pose it's good to get a diagnosis so you can have a plan of action ... Life doesn't get any easier once you hit 27 does it?   Sleep tight BL xx

Cheers! Newboy , that's kind of you 

Is this chickweed?

Posted: 22/06/2017 at 19:05

No not chickweed, it's Fat Hen - Chenopodium album - a common agricultural weed.  


It's also known as Lamb's Quarter and sometimes grown as a vegetable.
