is this a weed?

At first I thought these were going to flower, but now I'm thinking they are just weeds. Could somebody confirm before I attempt to remove them? We have just moved in and still trying to identify all the plants in the garden

    Not a Inula

    I think that one is Inula royaleana

  • That's great. Thanks.

    Yep I have this, it's an Inula, happily known in this household as false sunflower. Those fluffy bits open up into bright yellow flowers that the bees and butterflies love.

    It does spread ( a lot) so you can just hack a bit off the roots to keep it in check

    Hi nut, yes I did, glad you like them. I inherited the plant many house moves ago now, keep bringing chunks of root of with me and keeps it goingimage Mine looks like Gary's photo so will be flowering soon.
