Weed query 11
An identification of this one would be lovely - even if it isn't a weed!




That's what avens looks like as a seedling. I think we discussed it a few days ago. I know them as wood avens, Geum urbanum is their proper name. The first leaves are rounded like this - the later leaves have pointy lobes

i agree its a geum. there are a few species. One of the wild ones has tiny yellow flowers and has little interest in my opinion. some others are really pretty like wood avens.

Sounds like it might be worth keeping it to see how it turns out - exciting. Thanks.
