    This volunteer popped up suddenly, and I haven't a clue what it is. This photo is a cutting of it I stuck in a bud vase with some scilla siberica. It is actually a plant about a meter high with 3 columnar branches (a vine? a shrub?). Its leaves are maple-like in shape, but fringed, and its flowers are a pinkish-red, five petals. I don't know if its wild or cultured. I have tried a few plant databases online, but I'm coming up empty. Anyone have an idea what it might be?

    The pink one looks like Ribes sanguineum (Flowering Currant), the blue one doesn't look to me like Scilla siberica, though.

    For the blue one, something in the genus Hyacinthoides, likely Hyacinthoides × massartiana.
