Many non-native plants once considered tame garden dwellers have escaped cultivation and become invasive. These plants often out-compete native species for necessary resources and do not provide a diverse ecosystem for insects, birds, and microorganisms. Learn trees, shrubs, perennials, and groundcovers that can substitute for invasive plants, meet your landscaping needs, and put your garden to work for wildlife.
