I didn't see a forum for biennials, so I thought here would be better than perennials.

Neal, I found some Verbascum thapsis that you sent as part of a wildflower trade a few years ago. The are now scatter in a dry spot and if the birds don't eat them, Stan will be trying to dig them out next year. I'm not sure why he hates them so, as they seldom invade the fields - too wet for them.

I'm surprised V.thapsis hasn't been an issue for me since it produces so many tiny seeds, but I typically just see 4 or 5 show up each year. Its funny how many comments that wildling gets from friends viewing the garden. I started a couple more species this year- I'm loving those plants that can take heat and dry conditions!

I had considered creating a forum for biennials...hmmm...perhaps it would be a good idea Smiling
