Does anyone know how to get rid of Horse tail in my flower beds. It is everywhere and when I go to dig it up, I kill my flowers and dig my bulbs up. It gets worse every year. Please can anyone help me!

There are a few tips here you might want to try
Our garden is long & somewhat narrow. Measuring about 80' long, running across the back of the house and 15' deep from the edge of the deck back to the common area fence. On each side of
the house we have plantings - one side is the shade garden & the other is a veggie garden. Some of the native plants we used are Sage (a couple of varieties), Manzanita, Ceanothus, Canyon Prince, Matilija Poppies, Wooly Blue Curls and Coyote Mint. Hope this all makes sense!
This has small tear drop type leaves and grows pretty pink flowers that turns brown and fall off.
A few years ago, I began a garden partly due to boredom and the other because I loved looking at the gardens in Savannah, Ga. Anyhow, I just planted all types of flowers and shrubs and didn't document them so I never knew what was growing in my gardens when asked. Now, I take pictures of them and document their names. This is the final one in my garden that doesn't have a name. Could you please help me identify it? Thank you:-D

I am pretty positive it's NOT a boxwood. The flower turning brown and falling off does sound
like an azalea and the leaves also look like azalea.
I have a huge boxwood right at the corner of my house/sidewalk - impossible to avoid it! It definitely does stink!
