Missed this one first time around, Carrie - nicely done.

Note: you have the common names backwards on the two (excellent) viburnum substitutes you offered in the article.

Viburnum dentatum is Arrowwood Viburnum.

Viburnum nudum is Swamp Haw Viburnum.

My only defense is poor research - I just copied over someone else's list. Someone else, your nomenclature is wrong.

I was just referring a DG friend to this article today -- did you see that thread, or just happen across this randomly? Because I already had it open on my desktop. Too strange. But thank so much for your kind comments. It means a lot coming from an expert!

I saw your reference to this article over on the Northeast Gardening forum, if that is the one you are talking about.

Continue the battle to reduce/eliminate these obnoxious pest plants. There are too many good plants to use, rather than settle for easy fluff that creates so many problems down the line.
