The leafy one, it’s near my rhubarb plant in the border. I have a feeling it’s weed? No flowers yet.

    Possibly a perennial wallflower ... erysimum ?

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

    Thank you both, how exciting, will watch how it flowers. Pity it’s just the one plant though looking a bit lost there.

    They propagate easily from cuttings so you could produce more plants if you want:

    Thanks I’ll give that a go. I do like to take cuttings

    Looks very like Erysimum 'Bowles Mauve' which is a very common one and flowers for months.

    Thanks, no flowers yet so I’m going to propagate from this when I get the chance and try to grow a nice clump.
