What’s in My Lawn?

Did you ever investigate the variety of wildflowers popping up in and around the edges of a typical Hopkinton lawn this time of year? Of course everyone knows about dandelions. Pictured above are speedwell, starflower, sulfur cinquefoil, buttercup, ground ivy, violet and star of Bethlehem. Most would be considered weeds, and many are not native, but few actually hurt the lawn. A healthy New England lawn is one that sports a variety of plant life, not dependent on chemicals and frequent irrigation to survive.
