Fountaingrass, A Serious Invasive Species In The Sonoran Desert   3 comments

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

  1. Our invasive plant is the Multifloral Rose, which is pretty in small quantities but has gotten out of hand. It was first used as a fence and windbreak, now a noxious weed. Hard to believe for a Rose.

  2. Kenne,

    Do you have an e-mail address where I could write you off list? I have a couple of questions to ask you. Or, if you like, you could send me a message here: fredmcain@bringbackroute66.com.

    Thanx !
