    Possibly a Bergenia?
    If it is I think you should just be able to dig the whole thing up.

    Thank you. We have a whole bed of them falling over a shallow raised bed? I have dug them out last year but they have come back again. It seems they regrow from the tubular type roots? Does this fit with a bergina?

    Maybe a rhubarb 
  • I think it is bergina looking it up now. Many thanks. Shall just dig up the whole bed and remove it all. 
  • If if you don’t want it just pour on some rosate360 that will kill it completely, you can buy it on eBay

    Thank you. We have a great willow tree above it. Will the rotate harm the willow?

    Don't you like the bergenia flowers? I think they're great blooming before anything else.
  • ju1i3 I don’t mind the flowers but the foliage is doesn’t work with what we are slowing planning g in the garden. See picture of house/patio area. We are now slowly widening beds by the fences and will tackle the end of the garden last.
