Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Beware of invaders that masquerade as lovely vines, groundcovers or ornamental plants. They may appear benign at first, but as the summer progresses they turn into rampant invaders in the yard.
    Not only do invasive plants require enormous amounts of time and energy to control, but they also damage and drive out desirable plants both in the garden and, if they escape from cultivation, in the wild.
    Some floras non grata include: running bamboo, loosestrife (Lythrum sp.),
    goutweed (Aegopodium podagraria), chameleon plant (Houttuynia), common morning glory (Ipomoea purpurea), Japanese rose (Rosa multiflora), Hall’s (Japanese) honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica), star of Bethlehem (Ornithogallum sp.), fiveleaf akebia (Akebia quinata), porcelainberry (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata), and lesser celandine (Ranunculus ficaria).
