If you've been reading this blog for any period of time, you'll know that I have a fair number of "exuberant" plants in my garden at home, the type that others might refer to as "invasive."...things like Tetrapanax, Fillopia, Verbena Bonarensis, and my personal favorite, Cleome. I happen to love them, and since most of these have very distinctive leaves, I simply thin them accordingly when I get too many.
On the Tour last weekend, I even identified them as such, so that the "Native Plant Nazis" wouldn't start yelling at me about not properly educating Tour-goers who also found those plants pretty. (This yellow sign identifies the Tetrapanax as an exuberant plant, to use with caution....)
