Plants battle other plants for resources like space, sunlight, and water.  It's not just a human or animal activity.  Our green friends do it too, both above and below ground. 

Fuchsia vs. Begonia: these two are evenly matched.  Who will win?

Mariana Maireana sedifolia vs. Euphorbia turicalii:  The Mariana Maireana is overwhelming the Euphorb.  (Also overwhelming  my spelling abilities.)

Billbergia 'Hallmark' vs. Mariana sedifolia:  Not only is the Mariana battling a Euphorb, it's going at it with a Billbergia, too:

Tagetes lemonii vs. Aloe marlothii.  The Tagetes appears to have won, but it is a short-lived plant that I prune back hard after bloom.  The Aloe will be back, and ultimately triumph.

Clematis 'Perle d'Azur' vs. Rosa 'Laguna':  The battle doesn't always have to be unpleasant (for we observers!)
