Sorry if this has been discussed before. I did a Google Groups search and
don't see it.
I'm renting a carriage house on a glorious four-acre property with horses,
stones walls, split-rail fences, etc. With deer and shade trees around,
there's lots of pachysandra beds. What a beautiful plant! I love the shape
and texture of the leaf. But one of the beds has been invaded by Queen
Anne's Lace, which really is overpowering the pachy. Is there any way of
eliminating the Queen Ann's Lace without killing off the pachysandra? I've
started pulling the Queen Anne. Actually, I enjoy doing it. But it's hard
getting the roots, and I expect it'll grow back quickly.
Also, I put some pachysandra in a hanging pot and hung it from under one of
the carriage house eves. I was thinking of doing more since it's a nice
touch having the same plant hanging in pots that also on the ground. It also
looks great in a pot. But has anyone ever tried keep pachy as a potted
plant? Will this work, or will the pachy and its runners quickly overrun the
pot and make a mess? Figured I'd ask before do any more.
For everyone's benefit, please post replies back to the group!
