The Beast has been slain
After toiling for hours in the Texas sun, and getting beaten up by thorns, the Tiffany//Dr. Huey suckered bush that would grow to 6 feet tall and across and made mowing the lawn impossible has finally been uprooted and chucked. Here is how large it was underground compared to my foot. In it's place is a nice, new, own root DA Charlotte that I hope will grow as vigorously as the other bush did. Clearly the soil is rich and fertile there, and that spot gets hours and hours of sunlight. The underground ecosystem was thriving as well, with plenty of pill bugs, earth worms, lady bugs, and a nice soil composition. Victory is sweet.
