Hogweed

Neither of the hogweeds really encroach though do they Dove? They seed around and spread, 'encroaching' sounds like something with invasive roots

Slice into it just below the growing points, it soon gives up. Worth posting a photo if you're not sure which it is. We had a lot of this and OH designed a tool, V-shaped blade on a long handle, worked a treat. It spreads by seeding, don't let it get that far. It doesn't spread underground.

Shrub id please

It is rather nice. But yes, it will regrow from where you cut it.

I have records


The one I couldn't recall is  Euonymus angustifolia


Umbellata is in flower now, angustifolia is considerably later. The both have great scent. angustifolia is more silvery in leaf but that won't help ID if you've nothing to compare it with.

It is a euonymus,  E. umbellata is a possibility, there's another one I have that's similar but its name escapes me for the moment. They can take a hack back, no problem. I do it at the end of winter but one of them often gets another bash in summer or it would be in the road.


I have Euonymus umbellata in 2 places, one is exposed to sun and wind on dry soil and is half the size and half as healthy looking as the one on better soil.

Is this our native hogweed or giant hogweed.

Post a pic of yours on a new thread if you're not sure of it iamweedy. I think this is the lychnis suggested by Cathy

sanjy, yes, we had one at our last home, clung to a painted surface, the surface was quite rough though, not quite pebbledash but far from smooth
