    It's a willowherb :-)

    They spread very easily - best take it out if you don't want it everywhere ..
  • ok thank u :-)

    I don’t know about a willowherb, I haven’t seen one like that.  I will think about that.

    Flower form looks right for Epilobium Hirsutum (Great willowherb) but not sure those leaves at the front belong to it?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    They don’t look like willow herb leaves to me either.  Those new buds are definitely on those leaves.

    There does seem to be three plants in that pot I think. The plant to the right looks a bit like New Guinea Impatiens.
