Flower bed plan

If you plan on using the site every year for flowers pick another spot for the vinca as it is very fast growing. Vince I find works well to capture the fallen leaves under trees which in turn will feed the soil. It will also keep Lawn equiptment away from the trees. The canterbury bells are biennials producing leaves in their first year and producing beautiful flowers the following spring. SOOO in eaither case plan on giving them a good deal of space 3'X 3' so they can do their thing for years. Plan to stake the flowers as they emerge, so worth the little amt. of work. Put the lung wort in front of the canterbury bells and the cinnamon ferns in thje back of the border


Help please! Is this milkweed?

2007-08-16 11:03:19 by tapsnap

Hello!
I'm a newbie to gardening and need guidance. I planted zinnias and they are thriving. I also planted hollyhocks and Canterbury bells next to the zinnias but this is what is taking over. Someone told me these are milkweed plants.
Q's:
1-Are they milkweed and if so where did they come from and how did they spread and take over? They weren't there last year and are popping up EVERYWHERE in my yard and other garden beds.
2-Should I pull them? Any special advice or instructions for proper removal?
3-Do they have any purpose or uses at all?
I can't believe I thought they were the other flowers growing and I was so disappointed when I was informed that they are WEEDS!
Replies are MUCH appreciated!
