This is a nightmare of a plant.It's broken two spades as we tried to dig it out last year.It gets tiny little pink flowers on and I'm assuming it's a weed but it won the battle for now.I can't dig too ferociously as my neighbours beloved rose bush is back to back with it.




It doesn't look like a weed - but I don't recognise it....are those the flowers top left and near the top middle?

They are Spritz,teeny tiny trumpet shaped and pink.It's doubled in size and now stands around four foot tall but it does .......nothing.

Does it have white or pinkish berries. The sympherocarpus family have tiny pink flowers. The white berry one is also known as snowberry.

Well done Chris! You were spot on.No wonder I couldn't dig it up easily.

Told you it wasn't a weed...are you still going to dig it up?

Nope ,I'm going to let it sucker away since it's the only shrub in a 10mtr stretch of fence .It's the start of phase two planting on that side(to hide the neighbours):-) Although I could have bought something beautiful with the cost of the two new spades! It clearly didn't want to leave me.
