Hi to the great and wise
Found this growing in a bed and don't know what it is. If you could assist with identification that would be super. Pics below:
Many thanks x
Small and unwise here
It's a weed, bird's eye. annual, not serious but seeds a lot
Knew you'd know Nut!
And you are great and wise
Thanks Ceres That I have heard of!
Germander speedwell? Lovely out in the countryside; perhaps not in your garden Panda
Isn't germander speedwekll the perennial one?
I don't remember it last year. The flowers are pretty. Will hoik out though if we think it's invasive as the last plant I left (columbine) has gone mental, and I wish I'd got rid of it last year!
I wish I had Aquilegias (columbines) randomly self seeding in my garden! I planted a few a couple of years ago and haven't seen them since
You make a valid point Mike. I am by no means a prissy gardener with neat soil round each plant, but I do need some room for those I've bought. I do like the wee blue flowers though so they'll probably stay for a while
They have a very short season and they're a lovely blue.
Eradication would be near impossible for me so I've decided to like them.
It's one of the speedwells, Veronica hederifolia. I know it as bird's eye but all natives have a lot of names. It's an annual, flowers very early in the year
I have been fighting a battle with Speedwell in my lawn and borders for years and feel I have just got on top of it, however now I am taking on the fight against the dreaded Hairy Bittercress.
