I love the new issue of FG and the article about the plants that have nasty ways of defending themselves. Osmanthus heterophyllus ‘Sasaba’ is one of my favorites that was featured in the article (I love Osmanthus in general).
For many years I amassed a collection of agave that required leather gloves and double think eye-protection just to be around! I’m mostly over that now….
What nasty plants (thorns, irritating sap, sticky leaves, pokey, pointy) are you willing to have in your landscape and why?
