Weed....?

This has had me fooled - the main/centre one with the deeply dissected leaves.  In the exact spot two years ago I planted several geranium 'Rozanne'.  Couple of weeks ago thought 'they're doing well now'.  However, as you can see the flowers are minute (smaller than end of a pencil).  

All the Roxanne have completely disappeared (it was a perfect spot for them) to be replaced with this... It's a weed, isn't it?

    It is lovely looking, for the foliage.  And the pink picks up the color of your roses.

  • I'm going to have another poke around for the Rozanne in the morning.. if I find them, the weed is a gonner as payback for all the TLC I've given it this spring...

    In your first pic, left hand side, that palmate leaf under the rose stem - that may be Rozanne. (or it could be a buttercup).

    Oh agree @raisingirl - could well be the Rozanne. Sacrifice some of the Alchemilla to let it see the light?

  • I've been digging up buttercups in another part of the garden all day long.. but I hope you're right!  I will look in the morning... those Rozanne were SUCH a disappointing, expensive online purchase, being the tiniest, most dead/crunchy plugs you have ever seen.  They took months before looking big/fit enough to plant.
  • ... yes, the Alchemilla needs a chop and the Rugosa was doubtless a mistake too

    The way to tell the difference between buttercup and Rozanne is that buttercup stems all come out of one place, Rozanne comes up with a single stalk in several places. 
    I could take some photos tomorrow if you don’t know what I’m on about😀 I have plenty of buttercups to show! 

    As well as the Alchemilla, I’d have that bit of dog rose out as well.
