Anyone know the name of this weed? I've left it to grow as it's quite pretty. Thanks

    Looks like yellow wood sorrel, an oxalis at any rate. Nice to have as a 'weed' :smile:

    If it's anything like our Oxalis it will take over if you give it a chance. So keep an eye on it! But very nice looking I agree.

    I'd clear it away before the seed pods ripen ... it'll reappear and look lovely for a while, then clear it away again ... if you let it seed it'll get everywhere and you'll be fed up with it very quickly. 

    Enjoy but keep it under control  :)

    I have this one and the purple one as well but I have never found it to be invasive.I just dig it out or give it a quick spray if it is in the 'wrong' place.
    It is lovely and cheerful,if it was rare or difficult to grow we would all want it!!!!!

    Thanks everyone.  It's in a rather dull corner, so it can stay and look cheerful ! 😊
