CoastLine: Climate-friendly yards can evolve in stages, forgo raking leaves, and more gardening wisdom with Barbara J. Sullivan
Sure, you have a non-native invasive species, a beautiful plant, by the way, in a container on your back patio.

Sullivan, who once was a traditional, English garden enthusiast, keeping things clipped, raked, and tucked, took her time accepting some of these ideas. She also implemented them in stages. As she explains, once you understand your private green space as part of an inseparable whole, you will never see it the same way again.
