Hello. Can anyone ID this plant please? Growing wild in a neighbours front garden diagonally opposite.




Lythrum salicaria at a guess. Purple Loosestrife

Thanks Owd, I appreciate your feedback. My neighbour has a few things growing wild and that have seeded from elsewhere. His buddleia is very tall, gorgeous colour too...seeded from elsewhere. It all looks pretty OK from our side, thankfully.

It was its colour that caught my eye. Sheila. It looks like it's seeded around his other shrubbery.

Wonderful long- lived plant, likes damp conditions. On my list for next Spring!

I may have to discreetly gather some, Sheila! I don't think he'd notice, he's let his front garden grow wild. 😊
