Iris pseudocorus will grow in anything from inches under water to well above as long as it's damp.
Here it seeds into dry areas and grows but doesn't flower.
As far as I know there are no treatments for this. I fear it may not have much of a future, once you can see fungal growthlike that there is rot inside the trunk. It's not honey fungus so no drastic action required.
I hope someone else will bring you better news
Can't see it clearly Peter. Any tree with fungus growing on it is in trouble. What does the top of the tree look like? Is it leafing up?
These are so quick from seed. I don't keep tubers
I'd get Rumex acetosa, you can eat that. Common sorrel?
Much better picture
Hasn't taken me anywhere though
It's an annual. just pull it off, it won't regrow
I'd take it out. 3' apart is a bit close for hawthorn anyway. After 3 years you should be able to get the root as well. Your hard mossy fungus might be lichen, which is no problem.
Can you post a photo?
I don't think it's a pulmonaria.
A view of a whole leaf in good but not glaring light would help, and maybe the plant from the top. sorry
Terrible responsibilty, pother peoples' plants. I had some to look after for a week and the stress was enormous
Mine are out there now and they're not coming back
