Eleven Plants That Can Take Over Your Garden

It is such a pity that some of our most attractive plants can cause nothing but trouble when you allow them into the garden. For instance Lily of the Valley with its delicate white bell shaped flowers looks the picture of innocence in the spring, but once established it tends to run rampant. And there are ten more plants like that including Creeping Jenny, Gooseneck Loosestrife and Wisteria which are illustrated in a slideshow which I found on the Hometalk website.

They may be gorgeous garden divas, but they don’t like to share the spotlight –or the garden– with others!

These beautiful little flowers can easily take over your garden. Now is the time to get control of lily of the valley before it overtakes your world.

It was time to gain control and let the shrubs and other plants breathe. Hidden in here is a gorgeous pink hydrangea, a “samba” elderberry and an old euyonymous.
