Barberry in my woods!
Barberry has been coming up out of nowhere along a stream in the woods---in wet soil. I have never grown the stuff in the garden, however it has been my understanding that it grows in dry soil.
Is there a special barberry that likes wet soil? Where is this coming from?
(The plants that were previously in this area have been eaten by the deer, and the terrible barberry has filled in the empty space).
I am planning on pruning it to the ground. Would this be a good strategy?
