Re: RE: Holli's Pond - new TN invasives


Bonnie, hi.

Air potatoes are a problem in Tennessee, too? They are a constant battle here. Can turn you into a Pesticide-Spray-and-Damn-the Environment freak in 2 weeks.

There is a web site that has lots of info: www.tneppc.org.

Trees are:  Albizia julibrissin (Mimosa), Paulowina tomentosa (Princess

Vines: Dioscorea oppositifolia (Air Potato), Hedera helix (English Ivy),
Pueraria montana (Kudzu), Euonymus fortunei (Climbing euonymus), Lonicera

Herbaceous plants:  Phragmites australis (Common reed), Myriophyllum

thistle), Lythrum salicaria (Purple loosestrife), Lespedeza cuneata
(Sericea Lespedeza), Solanum viarum (Tropical soda apple).

What is so disturbing is that I am seeing so many of these in my yard and
on neighborhood walks. I also think, as much as I like it for butterflies
and hummers, Butterfly bush will be joining these...I am pulling out so
many seedlings...and, if I miss one, it is very difficult to get rid of the
bush that develops.

Interesting, Bonnie. What plants were highlighted? I'd like to try to
avoid those that are real threats to us.

Lovely pond...one of the volunteers I work with at the UT Trial Gardens
just completed her back yard...all walks and beds, no grass. She also
has a fence around her property that I think makes it much easier to
backdrop the image and contain things.


Friday, I attended an interesting workshop on exotic invasives that are
taking over greenways, public gardens, and private property in TN. In
addition to the loss of native plants for food and shelter of birds,
butterflies, etc., it seems that the leaf mulch of many of these
invasives are actually changing the chemistry of the soil. In one of
the public park areas that served as an ID classroom in the afternoon,
the invasives are so thick that nothing much else grows.
