It's called helxine.  

Any ideas please?

Sorry dove, if I see a few on a bush I squash them.  They do debilitate somewhat

Spot on fidget.  They simply go back and it's been proved

Helictotrichon is similar colour to most of the festucas glaucas I think.  I liked it until it regularly developed rust.  Salino, it still may be a festuca but a different variety of it.  Before Elijah Blue i grew varieties ....cannot remember their names... That were less blue but more lax in habit. Another  "grass" I like is actually a carex....testacea.  I love this one.  Evergreen olive colour and gently sways in slightest of breezes.

Thanks woody..will take all on board.  And woody, aren't you ashamed to have eaten so much.  No doubt you will eat as much tomorrow.  Seriously, you should keep a diary of your visits, your views, etc and publish it

Fairygirl, that's just what I was,thinking ...ivy and Acer wouldn't fall victim to same diseases or pests.  Daydaisy, have you been spraying nearby?  Is it accessible to other people?  I do,suspect human mischief

Fairygirl....I'm a cornishman....we don't "paddle".  To eat ALL the cake is bad.

KEF know what you mean about your sister.  Got a brother like that.

Tomorrow will be even hotter

GardenImg grandma, you won't regret more helleores. Let your OH enjoy his new lawn shaping.  It's what I like to do occasionally.  Considering a new border for the autumn already.  Wouldn't mind a truly HOT border with no guile, subtlety or modesty.  Just in your face reds, oranges, yellows including cannas, dahlias, echinaceas, etc. etc.  it would have to be a stand alone border and I need to prepare excuses for it. A fun border

It should simply lift out.  Is it mind your own business or Azolla?

No keen.. Love these threads.  Theyre stimulating.  Got to be sharp though.  You and Salino are on good form.

Think carex pendula is a weed down here......well, actually it is.  Not overly keen, Keen!

Salino.  Maybe it's the way I tell 'em....or plant  em but villosum doesn't droop for me.  It's like a fountain.  Surprisingly...for me at first....I found it likes a bit of water.  Maybe that's why it drooped for you?
