In a dry slopey area normally dominated by foxgloves, then poppies, i have a lot of these plants self seeding.
They are huge, yellow flower, not out yet but will only be a few days. Cant say i like them much.
I think I can see some willow herb - but willowherb isn't yellow

Huge flowers, or huge plants? Tall spikes of numerous yellow flowers could be verbascum, but that has fuzzy grey leaves, not like what's in the photo.
Yknow i think it might be evening primrose. I have a shrubby one, its not that. Flowers soon.
It looks like evening primrose to me. If it helps, I always have to check to make sure I'm digging out dandelions and not that. I find the young plants quite similar.
Do you like it then pp? I normally like good doers, but im thinking of getting rid. I do have lots though.
So are both these evening primrose? They have a likeness, but one is a huge plant that branches out, and the other seems to be flowers on single stems.
Any help on whether these are both EP ? Or do I gave one EP and lots of huge weeds.
They both look like evening primrose - there are several types and about 4 of those are common in the UK. I grew 'lemon sunset' from seed about 30 years ago which is one of the better forms and still have self-seeded ones from those pop-up randomly.
