Wow thats really beautiful!! I really hope it is a wisteria tree, I will just have to wait until next spring to find out  that's what makes gardening I suppose patience!!

Thats great thanks fb,

if you can click on the photo it should blow it up bigger, then you can zoom in on it by clicking it once again & if you could let me know your thoughts on it that would be great  

it does look to me like a melting candle ( quite big groves in the bark) but I'm not sure if that's how it should be? 

If it is a wisteria ( it flowers) I will be chuffed to bits as it's one of my favourite flowers, & will get to share it's beauty!

    Just wondering if anyone has ever come across a huge wisteria tree in this country?

A garden that I have just taken over (work), has a huge tree which looks just like a wisteria, the the trunk is about 3-4 foot above my head height (i'm about 5ft 5) 

There is no vines climbing up it (other than ivy) or vines coming over from any other trees.

I know they can be grown as trees & have seen pictures on the internet of huge ones, but just never seen one!! 

I could just wait to see if it flowers but would love to know everyones thoughts on this??!

I agree with marshmello about the bay, all I can add it cut all the tops back to the green at the bottom, bay's are really tough 

And Finally, Unidentified shrub 3

Thanks hollytree it never flower's & the leaves are much more rounded than colt's foot.

I guess I'll never know what it is  maybe I could name it (one I can remember!!)

I have pulled some up before that the roots are on the surface & they have never been joined together, but usually the roots are tap roots & quite fat, they can go quite far down.

But then I have never seen it flower?! it dies down for the winter too

thanks nutcutlet it's way too small to be butterbur & it never flowers,

thats terrible I've been calling that pink weed chickweed for years 

dichondra is a small ground cover plant & can be used for filling small gaps in paths & some people have it as a lawn!! wouldn't last 2 seconds in  our house with 2 kids & 2 dogs!! even the grass struggles
