Yes, I looked at that but it has dark red blotches at the base of the petals, and mine is pure white. It might be P. obovata var. alba. I think I was given it as P. emodii, but it doesn't look like that either. It needs moving to a less shady position, it's struggling a bit where it is.

 Had to reduce the size, so not so clear.

Nut, it was a short specific name but I just can't remember it. Will have to go through lists!

Can anyone identify this lovely paeony in my garden? The label is long gone. It's a species, not a hybrid, it flowers in April and has amazing seed pods. For some reason, I ca,t post the photo of the seed pods at the moment, I'll try again later.

Mine turned brown as well, it does die back fairly early each year so perhaps it's just because of the early start this year?

Privet?

Advice for planting under a purple leafed plum tree

The Heucheras should do OK, also Pulmonaria. Your tree is very close to the fence, you do know it will get much, much bigger? I wouldn't put the Japanese anemone or the Alchemilla in such a small space, they are too rampant.

The top one is Creeping Buttercup, the white flower in the middle photo is Common Mouse-ear and the bottom one is White Clover.

It could be rats, but rabbits do this in my garden.

What is the name of this shrub?

That branch right at the bottom certainly looks like garden privet.

Mother-die is usually cow parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris. Like most umbellifers, I wouldn't eat it!

Pineapple weed is related to Chamomile and can be eaten, there are quite a few recipes out there.
