    It could be Campanula Poscharskyana.

    Looks like Geum urbanum (wood avens) to me, just before it sends up flowering stems.  I can't get rid of the damn stuff from my garden.

    Apologies, if leaves are over 5cms, it's unlikely to be a Campanula.

  • I think we have a winner.... after more googling I think this may be the one. Will see when it flowers.

    I love the leaves so will leave it be image

    Have a look at some Geums ... Similar leaves, gorgeous flowers and doesn't spread so invasive ly.

    It looks like a geum, if you didn't plant it, then it's Geum urbanum, a hugely self seeding weed. The moment an insignificant little yellow flower appears, whip it out before it seeds.
