  1. The last two – masterwort. Are they what might be called weeds in some people’s mind or is it just that a weed is something easy to grow that looks good. Like we have Capeweed that turns whole paddocks golden but we spend Big $$$ on roundup to kill it because it out grows all the pasture crops.

    • Well, I can say that it isn’t a problem here and we do plant it as a desirable plant. Its not that aggressive in the garden. However, any plant that is not native to an area has the potential of becoming a problem. Many plants were brought from Europe when folks came here. We’re still battling to rid them today also. Buckthorn, osage orange, purple loosestrife, garlic mustard and many more. .. So many undesirables, so little RoundUp! Ha!
