BAD PLANTS PLANTED BY GOOD PEOPLE
Nancy Percivall, Committee Chair for Conservation/Horticulture, discussed invasive plants at our November meeting. Many invasive plants are being sold at local nurseries and garden centers. Effective April 11, 2017, Maryland is banning the sale of three agressively spreading ornamentals: yellow flag iris, shining cranesbill and fig buttercup. It also requires warnings be posted next to retail displays of burning bush, border privet and three invasive vines that are non-native members of the wisteria family – Chinese wisteria, Japanese wisteria and an Asian wisteria hybrid.
