Gardeners' Notes:

Negative Malus2006 On May 28, 2009, Malus2006 from Coon Rapids, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

Found all over North America, even up to Yukon and south Canada. Is suspectible to powdery mildrew but it doesn't kill them. Grow sun/shade, even dry shade in rich or poor soil. Have sticky seed pods that will cling to skin or clothes but doesn't have burrs thought they still will give a small hurt. Pulls easily since have shallow roots and have trouble competiting against other aggressive plants.
