Mystery plants

As I've said before I am a novice gardener and there are a quite a few plants in the garden that I don't have a clue about so I'm going to see if anyone can identify them for me.
This is the first mystery. It looks familiar but I'm not sure I've ever known what its called.

This I suspect is a weed but it is quite pretty. I would like to pull up a large clump of it but thought I had better check what it was first!

Any help would be much appreciated!


  1. My friends over at Gardeners Corner have identified these for me.
    The top one is Tradescantia and the bottom one Artemisia 'Limelight' or variegated mugwort.
    Isn't that cool! Glad I didn't dig up the Artemisia now. I will be nicer to it now it has a name!

  2. Good to know. Its Still pretty and I guess you can admire it from a distant.
