When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Any closer to solving the mystery the roots look similar but not identical, but can't really dig it up to check everytime

The leaves are just the same Carol. Thought you’d like the idea of digging them up to see how they are different! 😉😂😂 @carolgs
