Plant Identification help please

hi rainwater fanatic just looking at your first plant as i have a clump of these and cant get rid of them either i find the snails love to hide in clumps underneath the leaves they pull out very easily but soon come up again with a vengance they have a very palish pink flower that comes up through the leaves,not very nice,but i was told its from the family of scurvy grass and as a wild plant grows naturally in woods,mine grows on a bank,so im going to leave mine and keep pulling it up.

hi steve. i agree with nutcutlet,about the rockery and a woodland setting they dont really go together,but a great woodland area with some sort of seating with logs and woodland plants would look great especially with all the woodland bulbs, or if you are really set on a rockery then one big one rather than two small ones otherwise it might look like a plum pudding.
