Hi all, 

I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather. Let's hope it continues. 

I am in a new garden this spring and there are some weird and wonderful plants around that I am not familiar with (some I think might actually be weeds, but not sure). 

Can you help? Photos are below.

1) I was about to pull this out, because I think it's a weed -but want to double check!




2) Again, possible weed?




3) Not sure about this one




4) This is a fairly small plant sprouting up near a west-facing border




5) This plant has popped up ALL OVER the garden, so hopefully it's a nice one.

    I is an oriental poppy

    2 is Honesty (lunaria annua)

    3 is hollyhock

    4 is Sedum spectabile (sometimes known as Ice plant - but there are several plants known by this name)

    5 is Hemerocallis (day lily)

    My first thoughts of no 1 were of a poppy, no 3 hollyhock, no 4 maybe a sedum. The 5th one does look like a day lily to me as well

    well done Dove, as ever. I knew I recognised No 2 , but just couldn't bring it to mind.

    Thanks everyone - that was super quick and there is no way I would have been able to work that out myself! You are the best! image

    Looks like the Hollyhock is suffering from rust.

  • i have a Hollyhock how do you cure rust or do i just dig it up and buy a new one
