Snippet of plant thoughts

So both Asteraceae-Cichorioideae-Cichorieae: Youngia japonica & Lamiaceae-Teucrioideae-Ajugeae: Ajuga reptans in the yard with rosette behavior. Both are non-native. Both are potentially invasive but not listed in NC. Is it hypocritical of me to keep (er, not fight) the bugle plant and not keep (attempt to prevent spreading) the false hawksbeard?

I'm now recording the Family-Subfamily-Tribe of plants in big families in the Evernote entries about my observations. After taking the Asteraceae class - daisies and dandelions and sunflowers - i knew being able to key out a new plant by recognizing the tribe would be helpful. Beans, mints, and the apple family are also so large and varied that i am finding it useful to subdivide there, as well.
