Am stuck what is this please.
Hi @Gwen austin not sure from your pic, but is this a vine or random shoots and leaves coming up through the soil.?
Random shoots popping up. Lots of them
In a clump for or anywhere and everywhere.? What was growing there before do you know.?
No clump just individual plants. 2 or 3 leaves each. It's popping up in soil through stone on a path. It's appearing in a wild flower meadow, next to primula and under trees. I recently Pruned a tree that was unruly. Underneath were loads of this plant/weed so thought I should know what I'm dealing with
Has the look of Burdock leaves.
I believe it may be Petasites hybrida...Butterbur. Petasites hybridus - Wikipedia Other option is Coltsfoot Tussilago farfara. Burdock leaves form a rosette...and are more pointed. burdock leaves - Google Search burdock leaves - Google Search:
See above.....Final decision Coltsfoot! tussilago farfara leaf - Google Search:
Many thanks off to google I go
