I take care of a perennial garden in a public park. I've learned not 
to plant anything really nice or unusual--it just gets stolen.

This year would have been a big show of a great iris grouping: A big 
white, a big purple, and a white/purple plicata. Sadly, someone dug 
up the plicata so the grouping is far less effective.

We have thefts of plants each year. Last December we lost 2 weeping 
cherry trees from one of the community gardens. These things are 
expensive and so are targets for thieves.
