Use only native plants in your garden

Many of our most troublesome invasive plants are escapees from gardens and yards around the country. Avoid accidentally planting invasive plants, shrubs and trees. Plant local native species or types that will "stay put."

For more information on issues like this, see the Invaders information on this website.

How can I do this?

Plant introduction should be pursued in a manner that both acknowledges and minimizes unintended harm. Find out about the principles to prevent plant invasions at the Saint Louis Declaration Off-site Link.
