When these started to appear I thought it was a geranium, then I decided they were penstemoms but the leaves are obviously wrong - so its over to you guys image

    The flowers look like heuchera flowers

    I think that's what it is. Looks a bit like the one called Firefly but there may be lots that look like that

    Does  the foliage look a bit like this ighten? Might be a different colour - plummy for instance. If so, the ladies are correct!

    Yes, thanks think your dead on.. I think its firefly as the pink is very very vivid

    There are hundreds of varieties - one of those is actually a Heucherella - a cross with Tiarella so there's even more types! They're useful for ground cover - the bees like the flowers. Easy to split up or grow from seedlings - they do seed around.

    Looks like the plant I brought from the church fate at the weekend (only 3 quid, so I couldn't resist) Are the leaves molted green with cream flecks like this? I think its a heuchera, not sure which one though.
