Nonnative Invasive Plants of Pacific Coast Forests by Andrew N. Gray, et al, 2011

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2012-10-01

bookNonnative Invasive Plants of Pacific Coast Forests is an unusual field guide that helps to identify plants you don't want to find--but you probably will--especially in the forests of Washington, Oregon, and California. In various ways, these plants are negatively affecting our native plants, animals, and ecosystems. The intent of the authors is to make these recognizable to a larger audience beyond highly trained botanists. Many selections, such as purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) and herb-robert (Geranium robertianum), are all too familiar to gardeners and visitors to the Arboretum. Others will be less familiar, or you might not know they are a problem, such as some of our popular cotoneasters (Cotoneaster franchetii and C. lacteus).

Excerpted from the Fall 2012 Arboretum Bulletin.
