Has anyone got any idea the name of this plant? (middle) its for a friend...... Thanks v much.




Fothergilla major, Mountain Witch Alder would be my guess.

Oh! I thought it was Enchanter's Nightshade. Maybe it's very similar in appearance. Whatever it is, I've got a lot of it this year and am waging war.

If it is Enchanters Nightshade it should pull up easily when the ground is not rock hard, and the top section of the rootroot is bright white. If you have a lot of it I'd side with you on this one.

its not enchanters nightshade the leaf is not the same as this.

Just been along to fetch a leaf and I can see what you mean - shouldn't have relied on my memory. E's N is much more pointed at the end. Sorry.
