Plant i.d.

Please can someone tell me what this is. The stems are hirsute, leaves are cordate with round toothed crenated edge. I've never seen it in flower yet.

    Looks like Lunaria, or Honesty to me.

    In that case it will flower next year.image

    It does look like Honesty which I have here and there in my garden. But, there is also another plant (weed) with almost identical leaves. It looks like Honesty as it's growing and when it flowers it's not dissimilar (except the flowers are insignificant and cream coloured), but it doesn't form the oval seed pods, just a long thin pod, and once it self-seeds it gets everywhere, I have thousands coming up all year round and they seem to have a very long tap root.
    I would guess it's a member of the cabbage family
    Hopefully yours is Honesty and not the wretched stuff I've got everywhere

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Pete8 - are you thinking of Hedge Garlic/Jack by the Hedge Alliaria petiolata - the foot plant for the Orange Tip butterfly larvae image

    The young plants can look a little like Honesty.
