Comments On - River Cane

We even have these growing wild in the desert. Some folks have brought them here to form windbreaks and to stop the dust from blowing, which they do very well. However, from what I can tell, there has been no pruning or husbandry ever done on these masses.

Hi David,

Wild strawberries in the lawn? Could be a sign that they might grow elsewhere in the garden. We also have some wild strawberries in the garden, and I try to leave as many as possible so that we can harvest the fruits. I also leave as many violets as possible, because my wife likes to pick the flowers.

It sounds like the river canes are much like bamboo. Here in Nebraska there are several plants that are nice in some parts of the country but are quite a nucience as far as I'm concerned. One would be our state tree the Cottonwood. Our state flower is Goldenrod. Most concider it a weed and many are allergic to it. Mulberry trees, of course, sprout up every where especially along a fence row. I could keep going with the african violet and the wild strawberry that I fight with in the lawn but I won't.

Have a great day in the garden.
