    Hi All. We were given 3 pots containing iris last year. We have noticed in the 3 pots identical growth of a mystery plant ,at least to us. They well could be weeds but it seems strange the same "plant " is growing in each pot and very strongly.
    Obviously all will be reveled later on when summer comes.In the meantime has anyone seen these leaves before on a plant?? Thanks for any info

          My first thought was, also, Herb Robert. I nickname it 'spider plant' as it gives me that impression when I see it on the ground as the stems look a bit spiderish in the way they spread out from a central point and are hairy.

            Seeing how all my geraniums died in the cold i'm tempted to enter one in the show.

            Geranium robertianum
