  1. Seems every region has a plant that overtakes the landscape. In Ohio, it is the multifloral rose – a real nuisance in the pasture fields..


  2. Reblogged this on Becoming is Superior to Being and commented:

    It’s a continuous fight to stop the spread of invasive plants in southern Arizona. One such plant is fountaingrass Fountain Grass, a bunchgrass from Africa that is widely planted as an ornamental plant in the Tucson area. It is a tough, vigorous plant that will tolerate adverse conditions of heat and drought. It readily moves into wild areas and displaces the native plants that would otherwise provide habitat for the birds, butterflies, lizards, and multitude of other creatures. — kenne
