Hi everyone. I did ask a couple of weeks ago if anyone knew wether this is a plant or weed unfortunately I couldn't post the picture I have of it.  I have taken a peice off it and have scanned it. It is now well over 6ft high still no flowers on it, but I am getting worried if it is some kinds of rouge plant/weed and should I pull it up. Its not a Hogweed I don't think leaves dont look the same.  Can anyone help.

    It could be Mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris.  "A weed is only a plant in the wrong place, but a treasure in the right place".

    Yes, I agree, Artemisia image

  • In that case, you'll soon find out for sure because they start flowering in July. Are the leaves dark green above and silvery underneath? The flowers are purplish.

    I too think same as the answers above .

     I was also told that there are no such things as  weeds..........'' a weed is only a plant which grows in the wrong place''.
