Are any of these weeds?...or plants?

Posted: 22/06/2016 at 21:50

In the pic with the primula there are leaves and a seedhead of Geum urbanum, wood avens. This is a weed you don't want. Seedhead top left, leaves mid right.


The pink flower in 3 is Lychnis coronaria, not a silene

agree with Dave, cut some old stems right back to base. If you just shorten them to a bud, after a few prunes you have a shapeless blob

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

Could be Hostafan. The leaves don't look like erysimum to me either, though it's that family. I've never had a H. matronalis quite as floriferous as that.

I'll have a look on tomorrow's shopping trip. Do you think they're nettle proof?

can someone help me with what this is please

agree with Alan, arisaema or similar aroid.


A photo of the flowers and stem might narrow it down a bit. What are the berries at the bottom of? the leaves or the stem. Do they dangle like a bunch of grapes or is it an upright spike. What is the flower like?


Have a look at Arisaema speciosum, see if it's anything like that. Lots of them have the snakey stem
