Answer: Invasive species are indeed a problem. They are annoying in our gardens but they can do real harm when they outcompete natives in the wild. You are lucky in that there is a University of Minnesota Cooperative Extension office in your town. I am going to refer you there. They will have the latest info on combating invasives and suggestions for other plants for your region. They are in Park Rapids at 301 Court Avenue, the Courthouse, 732-3391. Good luck, and watch out for those bare feet!
