Plant Sex, Seeds for Birds and a Leaf-Stack Review
Ellen and C.L. discuss why you might not want to do a “fall cleanup” of your perennials. Next, we discuss S-E-X among the photosynthesizing crowd. Male and female plants, what that means for your landscape, and what happens if you don’t have both sexes. We review Asclepias speciosa ‘Davis’ and bring you up to date about #LeafStackChallenge posts on Twitter and Instagram.

Be sure to check out the photos of this lovely milkweed on their website, because for Ellen and I the plant was food for the Monarch larvae this year…next year we’ll have our own photos, but this year we sacrificed the flowers to the butterflies.
