Geum urbanum

I've always known this as Wood Avens - Herb Bennet is a new common name for me. It seems to like my garden a LOT!!

I remember in my gardening

I remember in my gardening days, if you got it in your plot it was very difficult to get it out! Very tough root system. And also the burrs carry the seeds eficiently on gardening clothes..
