I'm a newbee backyard beek and have about 1/2 acre of land that has gone "feral" from old pasture. It's become overgrown with every invasive plant known to the mid-Atlantic area. Some bloom (thistle, multi floral roses), most don't. I was looking for some suggestions for any plants that I could add that would compete with the Alien-like plants that are growing there now. I don't want annuals and was hoping for either plants or shrubs that could thrive in North Central Maryland. These are aggressive weeds. They even take out my Blackberry plants.
