Can anyone identify these pls. The first one has appeared in the same place I grew Oenotherea biennis last year, not sure if its a weed or the primrose growing again.
The second one has white flowers, thought it looked a bit like a sisyrinchium. Ive had it tucked away in a pot for ages and forgot about it.

Defo not a Sisyrinchium, looks more like an Aster.

The first one is the oenothera. As this is a biennial, it's probably a seedling from the original plant

The second one looks like what I privately call "that tall white thing" that has small heads of small white flowers and spreads quite rapidly, but I don't know what its called. Not much help really. It does look like an aster too but I wouldn't have thought an aster would be that tall already?

is the second one Achillea ptarmica 'the pearl'?

Hi Seaburngirl just looked the Achellia up on Internet and yes it does look like it. I will have to take another photo when it's in flower. Thanks for your replies . So glad I sent the photos as the Oenithera nearly ended up on compost heap ! 

Yes yes, that's what my tall white thing is! Thank you Seaburngirl.
