Something is spreading like wildfire in my borders and I've no idea what it is.



If you could tell me and how I could control/eliminate it, I would be very grateful.

Thank you.

    Hi John - I have it too. It's a little saxifrage or sedum with yellow flowers but it pulls out easily. Don't have quite as much as that though!  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Yes, Sedum acre.

    Oh image Thought he meant the tall one! 

  • Thanks everyone.

    As you've pointed out, it's definitely sedum acre.

    Just need to work out how to control it now.  Pulling it out seems to just spread it further image

    Thanks again,

    Spray it with Glyphosate!

    Spray it with insecticide. Sedums are killed by most insecticides.

  • had this plant in my garden i have no idea what it is --have you?seems to be spreading by underground rhizomes



  • our cottage had been empty for seven years when we moved in and sedum acre had overgrown the whole garden,no problem though we just raked it all out and turned over the soil,it never came back

    Berghill, don't you mean weedkiller?. Insecticides kill insects.
