Re: ponds/plants

Hm, interesting, never heard of that problem before.  The aphids seem more 
drawn to the Milkweed (aka butterflyweed, Asclepias).  Never seen any on the 
zone 9
Texas Gulf Coast

Water lettuce in my pond caused an outbreak of aphids... they seem to be
drawn to it, but of course get side tracked to the lilies.... lost a
bunch of lilies that year. I no longer use the lettuce and have not had
a problem with aphids. Not sure if it is due to my climate, but everyone
around here seems to have the same results.
