I have 3 unusual plants in my garden which I know were not planted by me. Initially they appeared around 3-4 ft tall and like a shepherd's crook. They are now over a metre tall and have flowered. Can you identify them for me please as the stem in totally upright and has withstood gales.




Look like Allium sphaerocephalon (Round-headed leek) ... view Google images to confirm.

Agree, Allium - they're bulbs, maybe you don't remember planting them? These don't pop up on their own...

Seedlings are possible, but you would have noticed the big leaves over the last three or four years.
