What really defines a “hiatus,” anyway? Maybe it’s not as black-and-white as we think.
I hate Japanese Stiltgrass.
This absolutely prolific invader––scientific name microstegium vimineum, or in my own book, grassus asholicus––sneaks in through sidewalk cracks and gardens unnoticed and seemingly innocuous. Within weeks it can completely overrun acres of forest, wetland, or hillside, and it’s nearly impossible to get rid of.
