Can anybody give name to this plant please

Mine are flowering, probably being flattened by the wind and rain right now.

Were these from the seed swap Fishy? I have Campaula persicifolia which I obtained as harebells on the seed swap. Fidget sent me some real seed. I shall have plenty if you want some or bits of root

Help with identifying

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.

That's so frustrating, especially if it turns fine on the first day back at work.


I can remember, just about

Non stop rain here too, fed up with it now. I was pleased because I didn't have to keep watering all the new plantings. Now I fear they may drown. Everything is growing like mad and falling all over the place and I can't walk on the mud to fix it.


Re the teasel, if it makes a seed head that's all you need to get started.

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.

That's the bonsai version you've got there wakeshine. Teasel is a ground level rosette in the first year then puts up a flower spike in the second. They're big plants when in the ground, yours is held back by lack of root space.

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

yes, get that planted wakeshine. It's coming up to flower, then seed and that will be the end of it. Make its last days happy with some soil.


GD, you probably weed more efficiently than I do.
