    Might be one of the willowherbs. Have you a photo of it growing? It helps with ID

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    DItto or prob a Willowherb.

  • No sorry took it out however it was growing in semi shade near a rose bush if that helps anyone with ID 


  • And if it is a willow herb is it ok to grow or is it a noxious weed

    Weed, sorry. and they grow anywhere.

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • Oh right that's ok good to know cheers 


  • Not very noxious though and they do pull out easily

  • Is it worth keeping or chucking away

    Chuck it away unless you have a very very large garden and room for a wilderness somewhere - they seed everywhere - little fluffy seeds that drift in the wind and spread and spread and spread!  Pretty though - in the right places.

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
