          Goodness me. There are times when I think I know nothing.
          I have never heard or seen pellitory of the wall.....otherwise called Parietaria officinalis.

          Parietaria officinalis - Wikipedia

          I am afraid that dear Woo's pic is not that.

          Note in Woos pic the leaves are clearly opposite.
          Whilst Parietaria_officinalis has leaves that are alternate.

          Even worse I do not recognize Woos plant.
          Sorry to be a killjoy!

            Hmm has a familiar look to it, which is what made me think pellatory.. So, it could be a self seed plant maybe from birds perhaps so maybe a berry seed perhaps.. Will have a little looksee what I can find @wiseowl

              @wiseowl I just had a thought, do you think it could be a Snowberry? Planted for you by the birds.? There is one at our local rec’ ground and when they cut it back hard the new growth is very similar to your pic.. :scratch:

                        I don't believe it @Silver surfer stumped, you have really got the scratching heads going @wiseowl . As for me knowing what your mystery plants is.....that will be a no:). i feel exactly like Marley Farley does in that it looks very familiar and I should know what it is but don't. It not some sort of Willow/Salix? Wild guess but looks sort of like a Salix I grow. Expecting to be told I'm wrong:lunapic 130165696578242 5:
