Re: invasives


Not that Crape's are invasive here, but I saw something cool yesterday-I was at my friend's house and several years ago they had the upper portion of a huge Pecan removed. So, the trunk and short limbs are still there. We noticed something growing out of a deep crotch in the tree and turns out if was a Crape seedling. It will look pretty neat if it ever blooms.

Exactly the same here on the butterfly bush and privet. One of my problems
is that most of my neighborhood is getting older and are not as able to
clean out privet seedlings so they are getting bigger and closer. My Crepe
Myrtle has only put out one seedling and it was in the same bed.

Whenever I say that some plant hasn't been a problem for me, it inevitably
becomes a pest! Butterfly bushes are coming up everywhere and the privets
are too! I didn't know about crape myrtles spreading their seed around. I
hesitate to say that I haven't had any baby crape myrtles appear in the
garden- I'll update you all this summer!  I've been growing one specimen
at
least 10 years now.  Maybe it's sterile!
