Afraid to plant it!
Hi All - I posted this in the groundcover forum, but it doesn't look like they have as much traffic as we do here, so I thought I'd run it by the gardeners here on the decorating side.
I purchased myrtle a few weeks ago because I love how it looks. I knew that it was an aggressive plant, but the reviews I've seen online are scaring me! :)
I have several areas when I could plant it, but most of them border the lawn and I have a feeling that I would be setting myself up for A LOT of work in the future once it is established.
I have a planting area that is surrounded by concrete (the front of the house on one side, then a long sidewalk the leads to the driveway. I am thinking about putting it there since it will be "captive". However, there are already hostas and day lilies planted in the area. Would myrtle choke the existing plants, or would it just provide a nice cover around them?
