Hi, I just recently moved house and we have a huge garden with lots of beautiful plants! However there is one plant that im not sure is a flower or weed. It grows quickly (and is blocking some of our sprinklers from actually watering the garden! So i have had to pull half of them out and replant them elsewhere) and currently has pink coloured flowers which are clustered into spherical-like shapes.

I dont know much about gardening but recently i have begun to enjoy it.

I will try to attach a picture.


Thanks!

You have a lovely Centranthus rubra. If you cut it back about halfway, it will rebloom for you. It will anyway but it will look nicer.
