Connecticut’s Invasive Plants
Connecticut’s Invasive Plants This is a re-post from October 2012, but the information is still valid and important. What a gardener refers to as invasive might really be no more than a garden thug – a plant that doesn't understand how to play nicely with its neighbors and aggressively crowds other plants. Garden thugs may be a pain in the root to neighboring plants, or a pain in the gardener's back - or more southerly bit of human anatomy - but a plant thug may not pass the nine point test required to be named a Connecticut invasive. . . .
