they came from hell ….

and are now in my garden.

They came in many guises. Some looked like old friends. Others were new, but I couldn’t imagine them doing what they did. They refuse to die. Try to kill one, and thousands take their place.

Some came as “charming, old-fashioned, heirloom herbs”;

or pretending to be ordinary garden bulbs;

six million per square yard

or innocent hitchhikers on a lonely road;

or “rare and choice” rock garden plants;

go ahead, pull me out


or as “an unusual maple that no one else grows”

trying to cut this down, before it leaves a billion seedlings in my garden

these are the Children of the Night, the plants from hell, whose names I dare not speak.
