bad weeds grow tall meaning

I can´t see any connection between these two parts because they are opposites.
You usally refer to bad people in the first part and address them as "Unkraut" (not always seriously, of course). It says that don´t die/die out. While the second part means that good people live long. That´s , at least, how I understand it.


T he E nglish equivalent would be "Bad weeds grow tall" (it just won ‘ t vanish)


I can confirm the explanation of F rank78 and want to add: bad people won ‘ t turn good.
A nalogically with the first phrase the second also means: good people remain good.

Bad weeds grow tall meaning

Those of you familiar with the flora of overgrown pastures may know bull thistle as a common inhabitant of such areas. But this Old-World native can also take advantage of disturbed ground along roadsides, etc. No shy wallflower, you'll know this robust noxious weed when you see it: Plants can reach a height of 7 feet under ideal conditions.

“Noxious” weeds are so called because they are harmful (from the Latin, nocere, to harm). But the term is an inexact one, since a so-called noxious weed may not be harmful to everyone; plus people will disagree on what criteria should be used to measure harm. In the broadest sense, quite a variety of unwanted plants can be classified as noxious weeds, so we must approach the subject from a number of perspectives.

People interested in planting herbs may grow stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) in their gardens for culinary purposes, but most gardeners consider it a noxious weed.

Spotted Knapweed

Poison sumac (Toxicodendron vernix) has a lovely autumn leaf color. Look, but do not touch!

For instance, some people use the terminology “noxious weeds” as if it were almost synonymous with “invasive plants.” Two sets of criteria are used to measure the harm caused by invasive plants:

Regardless of which version of the rhyme you like better, the plant clearly does have leaflets or leaves of three parts. But other types of plants also have "leaves of three." So knowledge of this feature will get you only so far in truly being able to tell poison ivy from other plants.

Bittersweet Nightshade

Bull thistle is a biennial. It develops rosettes the first year, succeeded by flower stalks the following year. Plants are covered with spines, making the sort of spontaneous removal that you may practice with other noxious weeds a bad idea for bull thistle. No, this is the type of plant you come prepared to remove, wearing heavy gloves and long sleeves/pants and wielding a shovel. Dig bull thistle out by the root. Don't let it go to seed.
