Hitchhiking Vinca With Transplanted Division - February 204
I noticed something new in the middle-back of our backyard: A small amount of vinca that is evergreen mixed in amongst a bunch of leaves and fall tree litter. The Vinca stands out because of the color. But also...because of where it is located. This is a brand new spot for this invasive groundcover. See below for a look at the little bit of Vinca that is trying to establish itself:
We have some Vinca that creeps over from our neighbor to the south, but that is growing in a bed that is much closer to the house. I'm NOT sure what I dug and (likely) divided and transplanted here (most likely a hosta based on what I'm seeing amongst the roots and tips there in the photo). But, what *is* certain is that some vinca hitchhiked along with it.
Note to self: stay on top of this. Dig it up and toss it - if needed. Don't let Vinca establish here, Jake.
