Missouri fights the good fight

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch comes this article about the war against invasive plants in Missouri. It features profiles of several people involved and lists some ways in which they have changed the way gardeners and nurseries think about invasive plants, as well as their hybrids and cultivars. There's also this article from the same newspaper, which suggests native alternatives to invasive plants. If you are from Missouri and want more information, you can visit the Harmful Exotic Species Program web site, from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
