Any ideas folks?  Growing in shady damp area.  It is the one with the tiny white leaves and 'spade' shaped leaves.

    I think that's Enchanter's nightshade.

    I've got that one. tiny white roots of which all pieces re-grow

    Yes, Nut that seems to be right - thank you.  It is very pretty and dainty and I was worried that it might be invasive, but on reading the details it won't be a problem where it is.

    Mine invade through the hedge. If you let if flower, you'll find out its pretty invasive.

    Oh dear Fidgetbones - I don't like the sound of that.  It is in a noarrow strip of no man's land between a fence and paving slabs that butt onto our house wall.  Next doors drive is immediately on the other side of the fence.  Hopefully being between two lots of 'concrete' will keep it in check as I think it looks sweet.

    I shouldn't think so bekkie. 

    Its common name is enchanter's nightshade but it's related to willowherbs rather than deadly nightshade etc. Not even in the same family
