Cinquefoil? Potentilla reptans?
That's one of my weeds
It likes shade, it doesn't get much moisture here
Green alkanet is Pentaglossis sempervirens. I don't think it's a dye plant.
The difference between a tree paeony and a herbaceous one is wood. The herbaceous disappears completely for winter, the tree paeony keeps a woody framework like the tree/shrub that it is. one metre is quite small for a tree paeony.
PS. A small plant might be as cheap as a packet of seed, it would set seed and you'd have it forever
I'd get some new seed and direct sow
Suirrels took and ate/planted all mine when they were barely ripe Matty
When the acorns fall off the tree, pick some up, sow them, can't fail.
I don't think now is the right time though. Hard to find the acorns.
I've abandoned Dixter//Fireglow or whatever I had. It wandered and died out in patches. Not a stunner but would have been good in flower if it had spread out and left gaps in the middle.
I think its reputation is deserved.
and apart from the brief flowering period it's pretty dull
