Visitors we have keep asking what plant this is and can they have a cutting , or better still a root.
Of course I haven’t a clue - does anyone ?




Sorry Hank, need a closer pic of the foliage etc. to be sure what it is.

yes I cant make out if you mean the reddy brown one or the green one. or is it the same plant?

I've seen that before but can't remember what it is -typical!

Is it one of these? Euphorbia amygdaloides purpurea here at

Looks ( the purple) a lot like Lysimachia ciliata purpurea- I hope I spelled that right. It sends out runners, quite invasive but I tolerate it in my garden because it fills in the blank spaces in my garden while I figure out what to do with those areas which sometimes takes years in my case.

Better pic tomorrow if I can get one. Thanks for replies Not the green stuff.

Hank, if you can, try cutting off a few lengths of it and place them on a neutral background to see the shape and arrangement of the leaves on their stems.

It looks like a Euphorbia I have - Chameleon. Seeds quite freely.

The dark one looks very like Oxalis, a rock plant.
