Re: RE: Buddleia davidii a noxious weed???

Kitty, not Donna but...my daffs. are just now starting to set
buds...none blooming yet in this part of zone 5 and I have
early/mid/late varieties...expect to see the early ones in bloom by next
week and that's more or less on time for my yard. I have seen a couple
of folks around here that have one or two blooms open on their daffs,
but that's a rarity.
