Re: today now weeding or lack of....

Hello Donna,
    Both the great blue and the cardinal do just fine without bogs here in
my garden and have for many years now. Both seed about on their own and that
is where they do best. Either one can become a bit of a weed after a few
years. I have learned to snip the stems and collect the seed so that is does
not blow around in the garden now.
    They may grow in flood plains or bog in nature in many instances, but
neither one has to have that to do well in the garden. They are simply
smaller than you will find with the additional moisture.
