  Lewis' Monkeyflower Lewis' Monkeyflower
Lewis' Monkeyflower
Insect-eating plant. M. lewisii is known to possess "flypaper-type" traps and is apparently protocarnivorous, supplementing its nutrients with small insects. Member of the Lopseed Family,

Native Americans and early travelers in the American West used the monkey flower as a salt substitute to flavor wild game. The entire plant is edible, but reported to be very salty and bitter unless well cooked. The juice squeezed from the plant's foliage was used as a soothing poultice for minor burns and skin irritations.

Hard to say....but many have described a similar situation with Bradford Pears....where after failing to flower, they produce many new leaves...could be a soil deficiency..... I'd recommend reading through this forum...it contains a lot of good questions/answers that may help you: http://landscaping.about.com/b/2007/12/08/bradford-pear-trees.htm

I live in Central Florida. My Broccoli, Cabbage and Brussel Sprouts are not producing. Bought the starter plants from Home Depot. It has been two months. Why do I have no heads producing?
Answer This Question

Can't be sure, but I know that in hot weather cruciferous plants like Broccoli, Cabbage, and Brussel Sprouts will often go dormant until the weather is cooler. Alternatively, they may simply need more time...

Answer This Question

Thank you! I will have to try these things!
Natural repellents include catnip, chives, garlic, tansy, dead beetles, and soap-water spray mixtures. You can use a bio-spray called Milky Spore, (Paenibacillus popilliae, or Bacillusb popilliae), but it can take up to 5 years. Pheromone traps just bring more beetles.

Goat head problem Goat head problem
Christopher Haynes
How can you get rid of Goat heads? Caan they grow in grass? I have two baseball fields full of them and dont know how to get rid of them so the kids can play on the fields. Thank you.
Answer This Question
February 21, 2010
Goat Heads can be a very difficult problem...and there is no sure way to get rid of them. They can be sprayed with chemicals, but this also kills any other vegetation in the area. Some people have tried introducing goat head weevils, which infect the seedpods and weaken them... This is not a sure treatment, and is usually only one part of a larger strategy. Domestic grasses are also very hardy, and can often out-compete goat heads over time...you may try sowing the areas with large amounts of s
