We know these plants but can’t always identify them. Learn how to identify, remove, and dispose of plants in your garden that are considered invasive. Some invasive plants require professional removal. Learn when and whom to call for assistance. And most important of all, learn about substitute plantings for your favorites from this group that pack the same wow factor without being detrimental to our environment.
