In the United States we are a melting pot of people and plants. We should
protect and grow all the plants in the world. Nearly 90% of South African

@YolandaVanveen I agree as long as they are controlled in a greenhouse
setting. Once people use them outdoors that’s when things get out of
control. Especially if the plant has wind dispersed seeds and growths in a
similar climate or has roots that are nearly impossible to remove like
bamboo so it gets a foot hold.

@dictionaryzzz Very few exotics support biodiversity. One exception would
be Scarlet Milkweed (Asclepias curavassica) which is both a host plant (for
caterpillars) and nectar plant for Monarch butterflies and it supports
Milkweed bugs and Milkweed beetles. Natives are always best since they are
adapted for your particular climate and have developed relationships with
their pollinators and seed dispersers over thousands of years.

Avoid the red trumpet and honeysuckle vines if you do not like aggressive
plants even though hummingbirds seem to like them. Once planted they will
turn up everywhere!
