Yes, Hermine...you see this being sold by the truck load on Ebay. AL is one of the states that has outlawed many plants. I couldn't get most of the floating pond plants if I paid a handsome ransom for them.

Wish they would outlaw blackberries...I have a constant battle with them here and it is quite painful to remove them. The fruit is inferior because they are so crowded into thickets....no, I didn't plant them. The birds did....

I would rather see them make war on the dang fire ants, though. That is my worst enemy...b.f.n...deb/S.AL

Near the Alekai Swamp in Hawaii i got badly attacked by wild
blackberries. I thought i would need a transfusion!

We have non-fire ants, but that is a mere classification; they swarm and
attack and bite, leaving welts and somehow, formic acid in sweat dribbles
into my eyeballs. I understand in some places pyracantha forms huge
humps, twining around itself and throttling everything else in its path,
whereas in other places, it behaves like a lawn shrub.
I have no solution for this, by the way.
there is one single thing, mebbe a kudzu, growing on my property. makes
no inroads. ekes out a bare existence.
