Hi everyone.

Can you tell me if this is a weed or not? 

And secondly... what tree is this please? I want to know so I know how to keep it looking so beautiful.

    The tree is an ornamental pear- Pyrus salicifolia pendula. It doesn't need any attention. It'll do it's own thing quite happily  :)

    The first one looks like a tree seedling of some kind.  Someone else will either confirm that or give a correct ID if that's wrong  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    First one looks similar to a young Astilbe

    It looks quite big and open so I would go with the Aruncus.  Looks at the same stage as mine at the moment.  They’re very big tall plants so wait a bit and see how much it grows.

    Astilbe or aruncus - they both lovely. Thanks everyone.

    And good news about the low maintenance tree!
