Re: Invasive pseudo

I saw on "Gardening Naturally" that many of the garden hybrids do
in fact cross with the wild, invasive kind. One might pause and think,
if the wild one is already present in the environment, the game is up
anyway...But nevertheless, there are so many wonderful garden plants
to choose some that there seems to be little reason to contribute
(even in a small way) to this problem. Never planting any form of it
seems like a good policy to me.
