Re: Some BLE I find Interesting. No Palms

interesting enough here lucidum is not regarded as especially invasive and the various evergreen prunus are usually quite healthy (healthier and more disease resistant than most of the deciduous species) and some like "English" laurel can be rather invasive in certain situations. possibly the cool wet springs and the warm dry summers may hinder both reproduction and spread on some species (like the lucidum) AND help others (like some of the evergreen prunus)?
