    I'm sure you're right it's a pea but I don't think I'd be able to ID it before flowers

    Could this be a young lobelia? I have pulled out my self-setting saplings so cannot check "at source".

    After all, it is in the pea family.

    Lobelia is Campanulaceae, I've never seen a lobelia with leaves like that

    Aaaah! Laburnum ... I always get a block when 'naming that tree' and have to start at lobelia before arriving at laburnum ....

    Nice one Peter. I have a similar problem with numbers. Have to recite the multiplication table to get to the one I want

    Now you say that, it does look like a baby laburnum.

    i had actually previously posted about the plant before in a different thread

    Do laburnums climb up other plants? It seems to have small tendril like growths on the tips image

    As far as I know, laburnums do not have tendrils, so we go back to the start now, it could be any one of the pea/vetch/clover family

    Could it be Trapaeolum speciosum image Should have 5 rounded leaves but maybe too young yet?
