Plant identification help

Need help identifying these plants that came from my (late) Grandmother. They came from one plant she had and my mom has turned it into many containers full. It's grass-like and bloom started coming up yesterday (directly from the soil). Seems to thrive in wet soil an I'm told flowers may be blue as well as pinkish purple. Thanks for your help :)

ground cover

Have a slope adjacent to driveway incline. Would Thymus p. Coccineus from Burgess be a good choice?

Thinning lawn

I live in Springfield, MN in Brown County. My lawn seem to be growing thinner each year. I have lawn care fertilizing it, I have aerated it by having them 'plug' it. Last summer noticed a yellow dust on my lawn mower - perhaps a mold. Much of the lawn turned completely brown. It turned green again in the fall, but remained very thin. Is there something I can do, or will it require re-sodding?

What is this plant?

I have looked through multiple wildflower, weed, and cultivated flower books-- and have not found this plant. We have lived here three years and haven't seen it in flower. We found a similar rosette in a garden flower book (they gave it the common name blue-eyed mary and said it spreads with a creeping rootstock. I dug up some and didn't find any creeping rootstocks. We'd like to know what it is so we can properly managed it.

transplanting a catalpa tree

We live on a farm site in southwest MN. We have a catalpa tree that started growing last year and needs to be moved. When is a good time of year to do that? The trunk is about 3" in diameter. They seem to grow pretty fast. Thank you

Pest identity

I have noticed small soft black winged insects on the underside of my eggplant leaves. What are they and are they a problem?
