Buttercupdays says:

C. Tommasinianus is brilliant in grass.  Bear in mind though that you can't mow the grass for at least 6 weeks after flowering.


See original post

 do you think you could convince my OH re that Buttercup?

They do surprisingly well in spite of the early haircut

When I've let thyme get shaded out by other plants it's gone all leggy, bald and hardly flowered.

Check where thyme grows naturally Watery, don't listen to us or Monty.

They don't all go well in the long term. Some narcissi need splitting up every few years or they stop flowering. I have February Gold and Tresamble in grass. Both sold as suitable for naturalising but, while February Gold gets better every year, Tresamble is wasting away.

I think the smaller species crocus look better in grass, C. tommasinianus does well

the roots are quite leeky aren't they, but the leaves seem to fan out more than leeks.

Potwoman are you there? is there any more info? smell? a photo of them growing? anything?

not carex

sisyrichium, not convinced

Iris foetidissima, I don't remember the roots looking like that but I'm not going out in the dark to dig one up.

It seems to have come apart quite easily

Have you any pics of it still growing?

The process of hybridisation produced Nepeta x faassenii. The seed produced from that cross could be much the same or more like one of its parents.
