    Some sort of moss but I don't know my mosses well

    Very pretty

  • it is pretty, I'm going to keep it. check my latest post because i'd like to be part of my rockery

  • Looks like a moss to me too. Have a look at it through a hand lens if you have one, they are quite beautiful in close-up.

    Phuopsis stylosa

    but, unless I've misjudged the size, I still think that's moss in Daniel's pic

  • Phuopsis stylosa - it is in the gardens at the NTS property House of Dun.  

    I love the smell and the bees love it. Easy enough to control.  Worth the effort. 

    'Phuopsis is a mat-forming perennial with whorls of narrow, aromatic leaves and terminal clusters of small, narrowly funnel-shaped pink flowers' on RHS website.
