Helictootrichon?  Blueish grass around 4' high

not a grass but what about libertia?  Evergreen olive/red/orange leaves and white spring flowers.  Around 3' high.  Maybe ophiopogon nigrescens with it.....black evergreen foliage?

Fire island is a variety I bought last year.  Weak growing then ....well it was a small,plant to start with......but I have high hopes for it this year.  White feather would not grow well down here either...light levels are so high that even light sun would bleach it.

Barry, digging up bindweed is worst possible action to take.  With respect, anyone doing this, no matter how dark it is......roots will seek out the light.......will simply propagate dramatically

Pretty much the same regime Lulu.  However, there is a stronger glyphosate spray and prob best to use this.

Peanuts, just think they won't grow much after October outside.  They are a little tender or at least can be spoiled over winter and if planted in spring will grow fast and develop some toughness before the following winter

Better than taking photos Luke, show off your products.  of course, ask to speak,to,the manager.  And stress local product.  Priced reasonably you could make a penny or two, or three.  Good luck.
