Good evening,

This spring/summer, a plant emerged, and I'm not sure if it's a weed or not.

It's grown about 3ft this year, and there are a few of the same plant within a radius of about a metre.

If it's a weed with rhizomes, I'll need to get rid of it this autumn, but I didn't want to get rid of it if it's a tree - we recently cleared a lot of holly, so all sorts has sprouted this year.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you

  • Check near leaves, in the stalk, if there are one or two glandes. Sep 21, 2020 at 12:49
  • No shrubs or trees with similar leaves in the vicinity, which seems strange to me, as it must have seeded from somewhere. I will check for glandes - thank you Sep 21, 2020 at 21:59
