|Clematis integrifolia 'Mongolian Bells', Orlaya grandiflora and Alyssum markgraffii|
There are weeds I would NEVER want to be without--and some I never will be without so I might as well love 'em....and may I suggest a weed isn't always such a bad thing.
I otnly it smelled as pretty as it looks! Unlike so many heavenly scented crucifers, this puts out a blend somewhere between swamp gas and dirty socks. And it insists on growing right next to--nay, UPON your choicest plants: it took a year or two but I managed to get rid of MOST of it...believe it or not the picture below was taken of the same spot, only a few years after eradication....
You will notice a few of them persist...I didn't have the heart to remove EVERY one: I keep trying to get them to grow along the path, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, they want to grow up with the choice stuff. So I battle on........
Yes, there are a few flowers in there....but LOOK at those fat seed pods! Each with several million seed, all of which will germinate and be in bloom before you know it will be in seed AGAIN! Stick to the other poppies if you have any sense. There IS a bicolor form of this species growing all over Albuquerque I'm almost tempted to grow (misidentified as P. rhoeas in a blog from there)...but so far sanity prevails.
