Now dap are you worrying about that stilt grass again....haha. No positive it came from someone else. She had a lot of stilt grass on her property and I found it growing in some of the plants she gave me.

I know. I was very happy to have a bonus of jewelweed and clearweed with my blue lobelia. The only trouble was they kind of crowded the blue lobelia. I moved it so I'm hoping it will grow taller next year. It was still beautiful though.

Again, yes...constantly, no. I had forgotten about it until I read about all of the other "bonus" plants you got from me. I do feel better knowing it wasn't me (again).

I hope you can get rid of the stilt grass. ...and I hope I can get rid of mine too.

I can see how the jewelweed could shade it out.

As for getting bigger, I think it will with age--this was the first year mine bloomed (from what I grew from seed), and it was on the shorter side too. Once it is established, I think it will get bigger.

I've gotten rid of all the stilt grass that I've seen. It's the grass I haven't seen that worries me. I hope it is all gone.

Good to know about the blue lobelia dap. Since I moved mine it might still be shorter next summer. We will see!

I hope you did get rid of the stilt grass and that your blue lobelia thrives for you.

That plant also looks a bit like the nettles but I see you've already placed an I.D. on it.
