Plants or weeds and what are these bulbs?


Hello All,

Is picture one a weed and also the leaves in the middle of the bulbs in picture two?

What are those bulbs? 

Got a lot of stones and concrete in a tiny border area of around 14" x 8". It's in a triangular shape almost. What could I plant there?

Thanks everyone!

    First pic is a hardy geranium of some sort 

    The leaves amongst the 'bulb leaves' looks like a willowherb (weed)

    The bulbs could be a gladioli (strictly speaking a corm, but like a bulb).

    What to plant in the triangular area ?  Why not take a piece or two of the hardy geranium (above) and plant it there ... it'll spread to fill the whole space and look like a green cushion with pink flowers.

    I agree with Dove's diagnosis.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
  • Thanks Dovefromabove. You never fail to impress me image. That's a great idea for the triangular area. Just as well I checked as was about to weed it all out....!

    Thank you for the other info, will get rid of that willowherb now.

    Thanks also, punkdoc.
