Hello Dottie

Hey Dottie, just wanted to let you know I saw your post at the end of the "What you wished you'd never planted" thread and left you a reply there. I'd love to hear from you and how you and your gardens are doing.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hopefully she has replied by now.

Hiya Dieter. Gardens are doing some better though not finished enough for viewing.
Still wish I'd never planted oenothera (the pink version). I had to take 8" depth of soil out of a bed to get rid of them but a stray seed caught hold in another bed. Now I'm resorting to brush killer (they laugh at regular Round-Up)

Too bad it's such a thug. It would be valuable on hillsides where you can't get grass to grow. Just not here.

Thanks for the heads up on the oenothera, I've seen it in a neighbor's bed and it looks real pretty, but I have no need for thugs. I have some of the pink yarrow in a container because it, too, is a thug that spreads rapidly. I'm thinking I made a mistake in planting the Homestead purple verbena, it is spreading pretty rapidly as well.
