Good evening, can anyone tell me what this plant is: It was resident in my garden when we moved in and although i like it its a constant battle to stop it overcrowding my other plants. thanks in advance
sorry it wouldn't let me upload the other one
What colour/shape/size are the flowers?
The leaf is similar to a Brunnera
Daintiness from what i can remember they are white...they definately aren't blue Pam (seached for Brunnera and all the pictures had blue flowers)
definately not a bergenia, the leaves don't look leathery enough. It looks more like a petasites, a butterbur. They have fine hairs on the underneath of the leaves where they are grey, and travel by creeping along the top of the ground.
could it be Butterbur, (Petasites), it spreads very easily and flowers in spring when very few if any leaves are evident.
backyardee, i don't recall seeing fine hairs on the underneath nor does it travel across the top of the ground. it seems to travel underground by a tuber like thing and then just pops up anywhere and everywhere. I did see a picture of wild ginger and it did look like that i thought. I'll have to take a another picture when it flowers.
Thanks for all your replies.
