Driving through town on a spring day, you are likely to see flower gardens and landscapes filled with leaves, berries and blooms of exotic plants from all over the world. Although aesthetically pleasing, many of these plants become invasive, taking over the natural plant habitats for surrounding wildlife. Imagine instead your own yard as a lush green landscape speckled with brilliant native wildflowers, shrubs and trees
