One of the best ways to fight the threat of invasive species spreading across Oregon's lands and waters is to replace them with non-invasive plants.
As part of the "Stop the Invasion" public awareness and action campaign to counter the environmental and economic threat of invasives in Oregon, a coalition of organizations developed "GardenSmart Oregon: A Guide to Non-Invasive Plants."
This 54-page booklet identifies more than 25 invasive plants that can escape gardens and threaten natural areas. Illustrated with dozens of photos, it offers tips to help gardeners select non-invasive replacement plants appropriate to different regions of Oregon. Alternatives include both native and ornamental plants commonly available in the nursery trade.
