Plant identification please

Posted: 27/06/2013 at 10:36

Really does look like a variegated ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea variegata). Does it have an unpleasant smell to the leaves, if so, then it definitely is.

That's the one I was trying to remember.  Nuisance of a plant.

If you look at the posting date of the original question it was asked in the middle of July 2012 which is a reasonable time for Bramleys to be coming into use.

My eyesight is not what it was, but it could be Veronicastrum, or then again to could be something else.

Crinum has been suggested too.

Talkback: Mullein moth

I actually only grow the native Mullein specifically for the moths. They make a dreadful mess of the plants, but so what. In  a garden this size we can hide things like that at the back of a deep border and no one but us sees it.

We live in the country too and have had hens, which are a real rat magnet. However the poly tunnels have had many pests but never a single live rat. We did have a cat who used to leave evidence of his hunting prowess on the path in there.

Go for it.

How did you get into gardening?

I have the tall one and it is no problem, just with a smaller version (will try and find a picture). I know I am not the only one to have trouble with it as at least two friends in North Wales both curse the day it entered their lives, or should I say gardens.

 

Photo will have to wait until the wind drops. The flowers on the thug are more upright than on the other by the way, but exactly the same otherwise.
