Looks like sticky bobs to me.( don't know the correct name), if you touch the heads they stick to your autumn when they go brown if you brush against them they stick on your clothes and are hard to remove. will seed around, they are deep rooted so hard to dig out. can be a thug if not controlled.

I have been watching Real Gardens on 4OD  they are rather old repeats but quite interesting to watch when you can't get out gardening because of the RAIN!

I find vinegar makes a good weedkiller on paths and patios, the value supermarket brands cost around 30p i put in a spray bottle and spray on weeds, they die off in about a week. 


Is it wild phlox?
