Home and garden online Magazine: September: Week 39 Pest Plants SEVERAL years ago I asked readers of the Los Angeles Times to send me the names of garden plants that grew out of control. The subject came up because several things I had planted were suddenly trying to take over the place. We're not talking about weeds here, but things planted on purpose that soon begin behaving like weeds--invasively spreading underground or everywhere sprouting from seeds. Here, then, is a list of menace plants suggested by The Times readers. Each was mentioned in at least several letters, so it is not just one person's condemnation. Though I would be suspect of any plant in this list, it is important to realize that not all people feel the same about these plants.
