can any of you good people tell me what this beauty is please? It’s growing in the crack between two sleepers of one of my raised beds. It’s around 1.5ft tall and the leaves are like thick grass.

    Hesperantha - for once,  it's an improvement!
  • Marvellous ! Thanks Berghill. I can’t remember planting any but there seems to be some of the same in an old sink and in an old watering can I use for planting in. They are really pretty so very chuffed. I love the surprises gardening gives you 😊

    Oh - I love the old name B'cupdays!
    The whites are lovely but I've heard they don't stay white long term. I'd like to have them here for a shady area, but not sure whether it's worth while. Have yours been there a long time B'footGardener?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • The flowers have been out for about 5 days. I can’t formthe life of me remember planting them but I must have at some point. Last year they were just leaves growing out of the small crack between sleepers and this year they have spread into the raised bed and there are some more in two other nearby containers ..maybe I planted them too 🧐
