Help with identifying

Posted: 29/06/2016 at 16:45

4 and 5 I can see prickles. The way they're growing is bramble as well. Ground elder and Jap anemone are more inclined to come up in clumps and groups. The top one is Japanese Anemone though

I can see the prickles in one of the photos, the things in the lawn, brambles.

Mine flower when they feel like it but a second flush could be a bit late to produce hips (especially this year, summer will be over before it starts). I don't deadhead mine.

Low growing flowers for lawn alternative

I looked at the photos on your previous posting

There are some lovely effects but they bring to mind the 'show' or makeover garden. Lovely now but what happens later?


What comes after is maintenance ie weeding. I don't think you're looking at a labour saving plan here.


My advise would be to try it. Nothing to lose, you'll see what works and what doesn't.


 


A few points. mat forming thyme lets the weeds through and goes brown if it's over-shadowed for long. Scarlet pimperenel has no mat forming ability, it's a plant of field edges and bare places, not part of a lawn effect. 


Good luck

Too many plants

I'd like mine to be more like that but the soil is poor and the competition fierce

What is this plant?

Posted: 28/06/2016 at 21:40

not Pittosporum, Persicaria.


I think those little round flowers are Persicaria capitata.
