Re: RE: Holli's Pond - new TN invasives

In my zone 5 Butterfly bush struggles.  I have lost them some years, and some 
years they do well.  Not really dependable.  It seems to depend on the 
winter.  A
really hard winter will do them in, especially if followed by a dry summer.  
I have
only had one seedling in many years, and that didn't survive.  This will never
become an invasive in this area - in this climate.

but they never make it past the first season. No idea why, just what
happens here, so far.
