What's devoured my sunflower?

I'd leave that there and de-sensitise yourself wakeshine. It's just a sunflower with a bit missing. what remains will make seed for the birds

It may get a lot bigger yet but 'tree' is a bit OTT.

They germinate at any time from spring and just keep growing for some weeks. The young stage is the most attractive, once they've been flowering for a while they are less colourful.

and they make millions of seeds

geraniums have 5 petals

poppies have 4 but so do a lot of other flowers, need leaves

my guess is those asters are from mixed annuals and won't have names

the geranium looks like endressii or one of the x oxonianums. Or maybe just a seedling of something.

The one with the red leaves is a persicaria possibly affinis

need some leaves on the white one but might be a poppy

Yes, they're asters

It's a native plant (the fancy cultivar doesn't change that) it can stand our weather.

sometimes digitalis don't flower till the third year and then they're massive. That's a big plant now, it could do a late flowering this year if it's confused in time.

Did you grow it from seed or buy the plant? and when?

lol H-C

Hundreds of years ago in my first ever garden MIL had me digging these up and throwing them out. At the same time, ignoring the ever-increasing patch of ground elder.
