This common garden groundcover has distinct blue-violet flowers and regularly escapes into natural areas to form dense mats.
Which plant is this?
The hollow stems of this wet loving aggressive invasive plant are often said to resemble Bamboo.
What plant is this?
This edible plant was originally brought over from Europe as a potherb and quickly began to infiltrate North American forests.
What type of plant is this?
This invasive shrub can grow quite large and aggressively colonizes forest understories. Its egg shaped leaves typically remain on its branches much later in the season than our native species, and is therefore easy to spot in the late fall.
What type of shrub is this?
The large white flower heads and huge leaves of this poisonous plant make it difficult to miss. It can be confused with certain native species although the purple blotches on its stem are a dead giveaway. Don’t get too close to it though, as its sap can cause serious skin reactions and even permanent blindness.
