Such pretty leaves, reminiscent of Angelica, but this plant is anything but angelic…it’s an invasive weed called Ground Elder or Aegopodium podagraria L. Its flower shape is one of my favourites, umbreliform and beautiful.
Like many plants, this one enjoys lots of different names: the two in the heading, plus it’s known as gout weed and goat weed. But I don’t care how many names it has, I don’t have a place for it in my garden, it’s a thug. So I set to work.
Have you tackled this weed? Is it now all gone from your garden? Let me know, truly, I’m interested 😆
and my next task will be addressing…bindweed.
