mystery plants

Hello gardeners! Can you please help me to identify these two newbies that have appeared over the summer? Thank you. 


  • Well I am glad about Honesty (lunaria)  although not where I thought it would sprout hehe!

    I agree linaria - toadflax
    and the 2nd looks a bit like our old friend goat willow, but not 100% sure
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I don't think it's goat willow.
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • 1. Agree with others Linaria purpurea.

    2.  I wondered if it might be a sucker from a Prunus..cherry tree????
    Doesn't look right for Salix....weedy willow
    Perthshire. SCOTLAND .

    Is the 1st one be a Euphorbia?  It look a bit fresh for Linaria. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Thank you all. Apologies: LInaria is something else. Also happy to have it if the bees like it. The second I don't know, it does look like a sucker doesn't it? If I ever find out I will let you know.  Best wishes and stay safe.
