I guess the lythrum will have to go
I spoke to a friend who is a former biology professor last night and his advice was to get rid of the lythrum. :( It's really pretty and the bees love it, so this is a difficult thing to do. My fault for not researching what it was, but if a place like Dominion Seed House is selling it, you would think that it's okay to grow. At least i did. I should have checked into it more when people here mentioned that it shouldn't be sold.
Sigh... I don't want to be responsible for choking out NWO's wetlands! Heck, that would be my own back yard!
