Is this a weed or wild flower

Hello Nutcutlet

Thanks for your reply.

I googled images of prunella vulgaris and it does look like my plant. Mine are very blue and it wasn't a trick of the light with the camera

What is this weed that's growing in the long grass in my garden?

There is a little clump of them.

 I was thinking of moving it as it's in my lawn and probably only been there the last two years and the lawn hasn't been cut until the summer months but not so sure after the replies.

Is it worth moving it?

Thanks

What is this plant that has come up for the second year running amongst the long grass at the bottom of my garden.

To me it looks like its from a bulb.

Thanks

This is a photo of the plants in the lawn with the side border and the tree in the background to show the distance to the nearest tree.

Thanks you both for your replies.

Nutcutlet - There are three trees on that side of my garden. I just been out and measrued and the nearest is about 9 feet and that's the nearest tree to the plant in the flower bed. Its a Prunus Cerasifera Nigra (Purple Leafed Plum).

I have also tried to dig one of them out but the roots are woody and deep (Disturbed the allium bulbs as well that what the white objects are in the photos) See the photos below.

 The leaves don't match any on my three trees, but I am inclined to think they are suckers.

What is the best way to get rid of them?

 

 

Is this an Astrantia?

Thanks for the replies and the tip to keep it watered.

I think its suffered in the past as I haven't kept it water.

Thanks for your replies.

I was thinking that it was from the allium family and its has an oniony smell.

I like the pretty white flowers but the leaves tend to flop easily and look untidy.

One last plant for identification please?

I was about to pull this plant out thinking it was a weed then I remembered that I did have an astrantia growing in that area.
