going to survive too.

You are making me very nervous Cathy--- I planted many of these same
species in my wet area.... although the houttuynia cordata didn't like
it and died off. But my swamp rose and prairie cord grass are just
starting to grow, actually though I lost them...

Are you saying I should destroy them now before they really take hold? I
know at the nature center there are large stands of this stuff... but
since it has been there since the beginning of time didn't realize it
would be that much of a problem.

Who doesn't have a swamp, but does have a wet area....
