Re: Progress on the garden wall

If it's got tiny purple flowers, it's neither. I'm betting on henbit (Lamium amplexicaule). We've got it here, too. It's originally from Europe and western Asia, quite poisonous to sheep, and an alternate host for aster yellows and tobacco mosaic virus.

like the little tiny purple flowers, but I'd just like to know which one
I have.
