Well, the rain might make it a little worse for wear, right now. (smile) Paper and water don't mix well.

Seems to me, that was the Pyle family. (smile) Seems like that was a spin-off from Andy Griffith's Mayberry. Ya'all know where Mayberry is?

I think they were supposed to be in the Carolina's, North?
Is there really a Mayberry?

Yup. Mayberry, NC, which is in the north central part of the state. Too small to show up on web maps. (smile)

Invasive plants.

Oh....I have decided that most plants are invasive, some are just worse than others. (grin)

I already have to thin the liriope, contain the mondo grass, prune off the crossvine shoots, prune back the pink indigo, prune the fringeflower regularly, prune the stone pine annually, cut back the asian jasmine, etc.

Anything that grows will either grow taller than claimed, wider than claimed (or both), or will be an invasive spreader.

So......buy good tools, and keep 'em sharp.

So, most of gardening, after planting, is pruning, trimming, and shaping, which is a continuous practice.

Chinese lantern had both.... Chinese lanterns have long been used in homes to commemorate traditional festivals and other special occasions. Popular paper lanterns are used as decoration and lighting for events of all kinds and seasons and for complete line of Chinese and Japanese paper lanterns.

I don't know about the invasivness <-- (is that a real word?) of this plant, but I will soon find out. I have one or 2 growing on my place at Aransas Pass. It looks like it may have mature seeds soon.

Do these grow well in pots? I'm going to pick some ripe seed pods during my stay in A/P the last week of Jan.
