What is the most popular perennial in the world?

Come on... you know this one.

Look around you. It's everywhere!

Still not sure?

Perhaps this will help:
  • It's the most high maintenance thing you could ever plant.
  • It guzzles far too much water.
  • It requires gallons of chemical fertilizers just to look good.
  • It costs you a fortune to keep it under control.
Need more?
  • Because of it, we gardeners are responsible for more water waste & pollution than farmers and industry combined.
And, yet this troublemaker is often the very first thing we decide to plant...

Give up?

I am tagging you for a MEME. Check my blog for the rules.
