flowers which will thrive in long grass

Posted: 27/04/2014 at 21:01

Yellow rattle needs to be sown in autumn. It never fails for me. It's been sowing itself for years now. 

Other reliable ones are lesser knapweed, Centaurea nigra.

musk mallow, Malva moschata.

Meadow geranium, G. pratensis

and various vetches and vetchlings, some of which are annual but seed from year to year

Field scabious to a lesser extent, it's there but doesn't increase much

Is this a weed?

That's not a very nice one, very small flowers for a lot of leaves

I like to keep some rosebay for the elephant hawkmoths. Also hairy willow herb because the soil beside my pond is very wet or very dry depending on ground water levels and it's one of the few plants that will tolerate that

They are promiscuous I have one that must be a cross. I have hederifolium, coum and cilicium as possible parents.

In theory hederifolium and coum aren't going to cross, National collection holder told me that, not close enough related and don't flower at the same time. The latter isn't totally true for mine, the hederifolium go on so long the coum have started sometimes.

 

ID this odd looking plant for me please!

I thought all the aluminium ones had either clips or 'rubber'  (probably plastic) strips

Are C. persicum hardy Matt? I could do with an extension to the hardy cyclamen season
