Two plants that I need IDing.

Aster ericoides, which I think may now be called something else. It will flower soon, mine aren't out yet.Lots of different cultivars in various pinky whitey mauvey shades. Nice plant

That's good Caral, you can decide whether to keep or dump, with ground elder it stays whether you want or not.

That leaves the first one, more pics might be required on a dry day.

It looks  a bit to lax for a bottle brush plant but I don't know those well.

I was thinking more like this

Elder, Sambucus nigra, I thought, not ground elder unless it's spreading everywhere. If it's not raining too hard can you go out and give the leaves a squeeze? The stems and leaves of elder have a very pungent smell.

No, that has much broader leaves, not meadowsweet either

The first one might be one of the asters and if so should flower eventually.

Is the second one very shiny or is it wet? It's elder shaped but too shiny.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

I've been to Norwell a couple of times Fidget. Andrew Ward does some  good talks as well, I think he's doing one for a local garden group in September. 

Identify please.

Hi Ann, a wildflower, yes. I think it was used to make soap in former times. 

I've got some growing where I don't want it, coming up through one of those yellow euonymus(es), but I can't get it started where I do want it

I don't like yellow leaves and pink flowers together

Identify please.

ah

well done

I thinks that's Saponaria officinalis, soapwort. Possibly a cultivated variety with semi double flowers

Identification please

Phytolacca americana. They are lovely, don't eat the berries

Capsid bug

They don't do much damage do they?

Think of all the other insects that will be killed by an insect spray; bees, butterflies, hoverflies , the list is too long to mentiun them all
