These plants have been in the garden for over 30 years. I pull them up and they come back - very hardy! They are perennial, flower from Dec/ Jan through to about March and have heart shaped leaves each on its own stem. They grow almost to knee height 18 to 24 inches. The flowers are on a separate stem with multiple flower heads coming from a few buds. The leaves on the flower stem are different with no stalk and are elongated & Lance shaped growing alternately up the stem. The flowers have pinkish buds opening to whitish flowers with bluish stamens? The ones in the photo are growing back after last year’s assault so are not quite at full height yet. Any thoughts please. Sue

If the flowers are fragrant it is Winter Heliotrope - Petasites fragrans, one of my favourite winter walk plants from my childhood.
