  1. Question

    Elizabeth Denison

    Is there any way to tell the difference between the species plant and the hybrids? Can I tell by the taste? It’s already in my yard and I’d like to know if it has any value since it tries to spread continuously. Thanks!

      Hi Elizabeth, One way to know is if the leaf is variegated it isn’t the species plant. Richo
