    Ok @wiseowl last attempt for a mo.. Lonicera xylosteum or common name fly honeysuckle...
    it grows in a bushy manner and leaves look like yours too..
    [​IMG]

    Has the black or red berries and it mainly likes woodland in North America and Europe and here.. Could even be a garden escapee perhaps via the birds.. What do you think my friend.?​

      Looks a pretty smart guess @Marley Farley, definitely on the right tracks. I've never heard of the plant far less seen 1. So much for me saying it looked familiar!

          You too Woo :SUNsmile:

          I am not sure, but I think I have seen them in our ancient woodland around here, but they are also in garden centres apparently.. I think it looks familiar as it it a member of the Lonicera family I think.. :scratch: Well that’s what I think anyway :SUNsmile: @silu and @wiseowl :SUNsmile:

                I agree with @Marley Farley it looks rather like a shrubby Lonicera to me.

                  Can anybody help me with this? Was in a meadow, I thought orchid at first but am drawn towards toadflax or similar? Foliage is even pinnate and is around 25cm tall. South coast uk.

                      @CraigET also known as the Cuckoo flower because it coincides with the arrival of the first cuckoo and the Milkmaid flower.. The plant is related to watercress and its leaves can be used in salads. :thumbsup:
