First time I've heard that term. Can you name any others? Is spotted Joe Pye Weed one?

I imagine Joe Pye Weed could make a decent fortress plant.

Anything that puts on strong growth and forms a very dense hedge when planted in a row can be a fortress plant.

Oh, okay. Thanks, that's an attribute to think about when planning plantings, too.
