True @valjones-hughes always one escapes! Think they're more grown for their foliage @bigemrg and flowers can be a bit floppy , yours aren't hiding under leaves

Got this plant in a pot. Had no idea what it was. Thank you for identifying.

Your welcome @eve7 these are bulbs so if you fancied splitting them after the leaves have died down they wouldn't mind!

This has just appeared in a shady bit under some trees in my garden. Is it a weed and will it spread all over the place? Should I pull it up at this early stage?.

Hi @nairn it's a bulb called Oxalis and has pink flowers. It's not a weed but if you don't like/want it where it is I'd wait for leaves to die off a bit and then move them to where you'd prefer. Hope this helps 😀
