We have too much lawn to cut, so we let portions of it grow…and grow. After several season of only cutting our lawn once per year, we are getting some cool plants coming in, all on their own. Rudbeckia hirta (native Black Eyed Susan) has moved in, and will hopefully keep reseeding and spreading. Crown Vetch, an invasive, though attractive species has also moved in. Multiflora Rose and Russian Olive are removed as soon they are seen growing. Yellow Toadflax, another invasive, is sparse around the edges. Queen Anne’s Lace, New England Aster and Blue Eyed Grass have also taken hold.
