ID help please. Weed or not?

Posted: 10/09/2014 at 20:22

Probably Pentaglossis sempervirens, green alkanet but the are other plants with leave quite similar. If you dig one up and the root is very long (and may break off and leave some behind) then that's the one

Given the general weedy state that geum might be Geum urbanum, wood avens, which is a weed.

The pink one is a persicaria, knotweed. Flowering now it's probably the annual weedy one.

That could be an evening primrose with the stinging nettles at the top. Biennial, will flower next year, but it's very much in shadow so I'm not sure.

I think the second might be the one that has darkish pink flowers, rather a pungent smell and has running white roots. Can't bring any of it's names to mind though
