Invasives – Be Gone !

Purple Loosestrife 3 w-sig
Purple Loosestrife is planted with abandon as if there is no problem with it being an invasive species and finding its way into nearby natural areas

Cape May County, where I live, has more invasive species than any other county in New Jersey: 366 as of March 2013.  Gardeners here are bombarded with invasvies every day in nurseries, plantings by landscapers, neighbor’s yards, school plantings, natural areas.  It’s quite overwhelming.  I delved into the problem in my latest post on Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens.
