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


I've not had any problems with my butterfly bushes, but I've never had a
seedling start, either.  On the other hand, Wendy, who lives not 5 minutes
from me, has had seedling starts come up for her.  Perhaps it was because I
always used up the blossoms in flower arrangements?  I certainly can't call
them invasive in my yard thus far.

They do fine here, usually planted in high shade.
