Mystery seedlings

These seedlings are popping up everywhere in the barked rose garden area, I haven't seen them before, they've been appearing over the last 2-3 weeks, they have relatively sturdy upright stems. Can someone tell me what they are please??

    ....yes they really are pretty, but I don't know whether to pot them up or to get rid as they seem so vigorous & I haven't a clue what they are! 🤔

    Hepatica?

    Thanks Jules41, I just looked up hepaticas and it does seem very similar, but it's not clump forming, maybe some hepaticas aren't? It's kind of like a hepatica x anenome. It is coming up in single hairless dark stems with good root system & the leaves have a muted deep red/purple tint around tip. Here's another pic of whole plant this time....

    I've just worked out what it is.....Chickweed Wintergreen (aka Artic Starflower) 🙂

    Very pretty Lynn. Are you in the north? I've never seen it in the midlands.

    Yes Fidgetbones, I'm in the Scottish Highlands just north of Inverness.

    That explains it then.
