Going to be pedantic again, Salad Burnet is now Poterium sanguisorba.

Ffb, I agree that the Ribwort Plantain is very attractive. It's also one of the most common wildflowers, have a look when you're out and about. The Hoary Plantain, Plantago media, has a really lovely flower, but it only grows on limestone.

Jim Macd, there are definitely red and orangey true Primula veris in the wild, I've seen some twice this year at different sites - and I can tell the difference!

It's Caper Spurge, Euphorbia lathyris.

There's an easy answer, just use the scientific name! These are specific so one name, one plant. You might have to look it up though, if you're not familiar with them. Vernacular names are interesting but give rise to many misunderstandings; there are no right or wrong names as others have said.

Nut and Bob, I don't agree about the colour of wild A. vulgaris, it is usually a deep, intense blue. These are in my garden, but they are the wild type.


Can anyone identify a seedling?

Well, I'm fairly sure it's a tree seedling, not sure which.

I don't think the lilac will be evergreen.

How about a small variegated holly?

Ramsons, Allium ursinium. Very invasive in gardens, lovely in the wild.

weed or veg?

That looks like Ragwort, Senecio jacobea. Definitely don't eat it!
