The stealing of plants is such a rotten thing to do! My daughter is the
horticulturist for the City of Fayetteville, AR parks and the thievery
has increased this year by leaps and bounds. Flowers, shrubs, small
trees, dug up and gone. The elephant ears seem to be a prime target for
stealing too. She digs up the huge bulbs every fall and stores them. Some
of them are absolutely gigantic and shortly after they send up leaves,
many are dug and stolen. The newspapers have run stories and the police
are alerted and patrol as much as possible. The thievery will abate for a
year or two and then resume again, as it has done this year. 
        Heartbreaking. . .
