I think that's Dracunculus vulgaris, dragon arum.

another bulb from nowhere and a baby shrub

Thanks obelix, mine looks more open than most of these but I shall keep looking.

Thanks kleipieper, I should have mentioned the size. It's only about 6" tall, I have some of those you mention, huge by comparison.

Anyone can help me identify these?

I think the second is creeping buttercup, but a view of the plant would be helpful in both cases

What to plant on a long, narrow bank?

I like the retaing wall, a rockery would look very silly there. But you could incorporate a lot of gravel into the raised bed and grow some rockery plants and alpines if you like those plants.

But I'd want something that hid at least the base of that fence to soften it a bit

Thanks Berghill. I had some white ones in the distant past, very tight flower heads, looked a bit regimental. This is nicer.

Could this have seeded from a blue, or a cross of 2 different blues do you think? (The white ones where 20 years ago in another garden)

Hi folks, the bulb appeared this year, just the one, nothing new planted and there are no others out there. I wondered if it might be a muscari of some sort

The seedling appeared last year, it produced 4 leaves. A few more this year. Slow but it's seeded in very poor soil under an old laburnum. It has an inch of woody stem from last year plus another inch now and is deciduous

It seeds everywhere. It would probably have flowered before in a wetter spot and been taller than 2 foot.

It's a sedge.

Precisely which one I can't say. How big is it?
