I planted some ‘Ranunculus asiaticus Aviv White’ bulbs last year in a bed in my front garden. There is a white beautyberry bush in there too but that is all. I planted nothing else. 

When things started to grow the leaves were different on some plants. So I figured something is a weed, I will work out what when I get the flowers.

I now have a flower. This looks more like an anemone I think.

Any ideas? I'm quite new to this really.
Looks like I have a rogue bulb or two... or maybe my ranunculus has gone a bit awry!

    Hi @Evecake the flower does look like a Japanese anemone to me as well. What do the leaves look like at the base of the plant? Could you get a photo?

    I think it could be a white Iceland poppy. They seed themselves.

    Too early for Japanese anemones.
    I think poppy too. Leaves look right.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Thank you all! Poppy fits... a few years ago I did try a wildflower seeds mix here, but nothing at all grew. I figured it was a duff lot.

    Looks like some of them might have finally woken up!
