At first I thought this was Evening Primrose but it is not. Does anyone recognise what it may be?

    It's a bit bizarre. Any UFO sightings in the area?

    If you zoom in on the third photo there's a red beetle or chafer or something lurking under a leaf ....

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !
  • I have had several and left this one to see what it becomes but it does not look like it will flower.  The leaves are spindly but towards the base are like an evening primrose.

    Triffid be damned!

    I've been known to see right though some things FG image

    But to return to this strange plant - it's hard to work out the size of things, but I think those beetle thingys might even be big aphids.  Could they have damaged the growing shoot enough to do that to the leaves do you think?

  • I don't think so, Dove. The leaves appear to have grown like this on the other plants too. I have just noticed the insect, however I am more interested in what the plant/weed may be.

    Odd that one can only enlarge one photo, just the once. Makes anything a bit hard for me with my eyesight.

    Think aphid/ beetle attack. Dove's right, there are 4 on that photo. My lilies that have had aphids on, NOT the blasted lily beetles I will add, are miss shaped and at the top and look weird. But don't know what the plant is, soz.
