Can anyone identify this plant for me?

    Don't think mine is a Sambucus Ladybird4. It's very delicate on wiry stems and doesn't grow taller than about 10 inches. Could be wrong tho'.

  • Looks like my wild valerian. Will look later when it's warmer!

    Judith's shrub is Sorbaria sorbifolia 'Sem'. An unlikely candidate for turning up unexpectedly. Though I think these have an unhealthy anaemic look as well. image

    Leaves totally wrong for sambucus of any sort and growth style wrong for valerian

    you've beaten me to it Nut. I saw one this morning and thought I'd give an ID.

    Having re-looked at mine nutcutlet is right! Mine is a Sorbaria - sorry for the mis-identification! I'm curious now as to what daydaisy's mystery plant is.

    Was going to say Sorbaria sorbifolia or the pink pagoda Rowan but Sorbaria sorbifolia looks the best fit. It is one of those that has been on my list to buy but never makes it to the till either.

    Do you think the OP is Sorbaria? It seems an unlikely one to appear uninvited

    I don't think there's any doubt about what Judith's plant is.

    I lose track of who's talking about what when other photos get posted.image
