Agree, Teasel. None of the Persicaria have that row of spines on the underside of the leaf.

Thanks, Cilla. It all looks right for Redshank except for the spines under the leaf and on the stalks. I’ll see if they are actually prickly today and look further.July 15, 2020 at 6:46 am #70082July 19, 2020 at 2:31 pm #70214VegVampKeymaster
Has it flowered yet Jane? Would love to know what it turned out to be.July 19, 2020 at 4:18 pm #70215
Believe it or not, Karen, I found out just a few minutes ago after spending an inordinate amount of time on it today! It had one flower this morning and this afternoon it was finished. It’s Prickly lettuce, Lactuca serriola (Roger Phillips, p.142). Glad to have found it – I’ve looked at so many options!July 19, 2020 at 4:19 pm #70217July 19, 2020 at 4:24 pm #70219gertieParticipant
Gosh, how extraordinary…didn’t realise that they even existed!!July 19, 2020 at 6:01 pm #70220VegVampKeymaster
Oh well done Detective Jane. Never even heard of Prickly Lettuce!
