Re: Paulownia

The unfortunate thing about invasive, non-native plants is that many of them seed freely. Birds and other animals carry seed into far-off areas, often along streams in the woods, where they poop the seed and it becomes a pest.

Privet is another plant that escaped from genteel hedges and is now threatening thousands of acres, much of it very sensitive habitat. I fear that Crape Myrtles will be the next pest.

Oh dear, I'll have to check that out. That's so weird about different habitats though because this one is the ONLY one in Beaufort. Interesting huh?

Please don't, Andrea. They're invasive non-natives that are destroying the habitats of many many species, some endangered. See http://www.nps.gov/plants/alien/fact/pato1.htm When they get into an ecosystem, they can wreak havoc.

Hmmm, I might have to try one someday when I have the space.

I did a talk on antebellum gardens and found that it was very popular all over the south after it was discovered in China in the early years of the 19th century. I have one in my yard because I love them. I pulled it out of my flower bed. They come up all over the place and grow at an incredible rate. It was named after the daughter of the czar of Russia. BTW, I can't believe I butchered the name the way I did. <LOL>

I just looked it up and it IS a Paulownia Zem. Hallelujah! Thanks for that. Now I'm just surprised it's here. I thought it was too hot here, but it's doing fantastic.
