Which ones would survive.

14 years ago

I'm thinking of removing all the natives this year I have planted over the years and transporting them ( with proper promission) onto protected land/nature center, so there is zero chance of them getting removed or destroyed by new homeowners when my parents sell the property. However I understand not all of them would survive,having deep root systems or fragile in nature, being dug up and replanted so I'm leaving those ones intact, in the hopes that the neighbors wont kill them, the trouble is I do not yet know which ones those are.

that and they are attracting the local wildlife too much, we now have a nesting pair of gray squirrels burrowing in our attic.

Common,Asters- grew there wild ( are there nonnative asters in MN?- may want to post flowering photos of the non-native ones if there are any)
