Forum home Problem solving







I have posted a couple of pics as I am baffled as to whether they are plants or weeds.  the first one is growing like ivy does but across bedding areas.  the swecond one seems to be popping up in amongst my other plants.  I have just moved into a new house and have no idea what these plants/weeds are.  Can anyone helop me so I can 'deal' with them accordingly.


Many Thanks

    For some reason the pictures won't enlarge, but from what I can see the first one could be one of the lamiums - useful groundcover - has it had any flowers?

    The second one is not so clear and I'm not sure whether we're looking at two different types of plant here - any chance of more pics?

    the second one is a sideways euphorbia, probably robbiae. You need to get your head on sideways for that one Dove, easier with a laptop.

    The top one is a lamium, possibly galeobdolon Did it have yellow flowers Martin?

    Otherwise it might be one of the L maculatums but it looks as though it's got that wiry look of gaeobdolon

    Second one definitely looks like a Euphorbia, but I couldn't have said which one - nowhere near as good at these IDs as nut  is -  by a long way Martin!

    I struggle with the sideways pics even with a laptop!  image

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