Dare i or not???

Posted: 24/04/2014 at 18:57

Are you sure it's cypress spurge? The usual one to find in a wood would be Wood Spurge, Euphorbia amygdaloides. Cypress spurge is not a British wild plant, just a fairly rare garden escape. Wood spurge is also a bit invasive, but quite easy to pull out.

So what plant / weed is this?

Winter heliotrope flowers in January so you've missed them for this year. It is very invasive.

The image is not wood sorrel, it's Oxalis corniculata or Creeping yellow-sorrel. Wood sorrel has beautiful drooping white bells.

How about Ligularia dentata for the first one? Fairly sure it's not Caltha palustris.

It looks like a hacked-about, almost dead conifer of some kind. Can you tell us any more about it?

Anybody know what it is yet???

I agree with Nut - Salix repens. Nice plant to have!

First of all, post pictures here and we'll try to help. There are some very knowledgeable people on this site.

You could also try iSpot, it's really for wild plants but lots of the folks on there are good at garden plants as well. 

Flower or Weed?

Are you thinking of Rosebay Willowherb, Chamerion angustifolium? It's not that, it's an Epilobium species. They have smallish to very small pinkish flowers and produce huge amounts of seed.

Could be a Willowherb, in which case pull it out before it goes to seed.
