they have floaty seeds, it probably arrived on the breeze.
Amazing things turn up, always worth watching what you weed.
Not nasty but possibly bigger than your usual weed. A seedling willow I think
Looks rather like Prunus padus, Bird Cherry, with those little fruits and the shape of the leaves
Sonchus arvensis or something similar.
Some people see Japanese Knotweed or Giant Hogweed in every plant they don't know.
I would think helianthus as well. Is there a rough texture to the leaves?
Liriodendron says:I've had D.lutea for 11 years and it's still going strong. See original post
I've had D.lutea for 11 years and it's still going strong.
with that one I've lost track of how old the plants are, it's a good seeder
D. grandiflora has been the longest survivor for me.
There are always seedlings though, like the D. purpurea.
do you mean varieties of our native foxglove?
Or the ?perennial but tender hybrids Illumination Pink etc?
Or other species of digitalis, like D.lutea and D. grandiflora
Yes, that's always puzzled me Liri. I usually get shot down when I say they're just more chemicals.
