I get a nasty case of hay fever every year. Why, at this very moment my head feels like it may explode and I'd rather be dozing. The culprit of my misery? Ragweed. That lovely-to-look-at-yellow adoring much of the midwest's roadsides and fields. The plant that, if what I've read is correct, can each individually produce a BILLION grains of pollen a season. So take a stab at how I feel when I see this plant for sale at garden centers! Or hear of people buying it to intentionally plant!
On the other hand, I read an article yesterday with tips for getting rid of oxalis with a smile because I've bought and planted oxalis! My grandmother saw my pot of it this summer and said "I always pulled that... it's a weed!" While I can see how it would be annoying if it were running wild in a lawn, I think the colors are neat and it's a nice texture (see photo).
What plant(s) do you see folks purchase/plant and think they're crazy?
