Re: poke was: terms/hollyhock?? OT Poke


Wow. Guess I am lucky huh? The birds have "brought" me hibiscus,
Virginia creeper and Queen Anne's lace, those little white asters
(people call them road asters here) but not this stuff. Sounds like it's
pretty invasive once it gets started. Mt worst weed by far is those
bloody sticker vines that grow roots to China. They are the only thing I
keep Round-Up around for. Beastly things.


thanks for the info lady!!

Pam
