You're right of course HCA. I even managed to check my records to find the second one and missed that. The eye sees what it expects to see

Plant ID please

the first is a euphorbia. Dixter or Fireglow or similar


the second may be Cephalaria gigantea, a big yellow scabious type of plant.

Not sure if they're biennial, never gave them the chance to prove it one way or the other. 


It was my fault they were here, the seeds where pretty and I didn't know what they were

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.

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

That's a great photo

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.
