Did you know most plants that are considered invasive are the result of human activities? Fortunately there are ways we can protect our native plants.

Our nemesis is the dreaded Kudzu although it's not as bad here as on further South. Ugh! Thumbs down

Great article, Chris.
We have one plant that is outlawed in Arizona for a reason: the Morning Glory. Many people have them in their backyards but they are not sold locally anymore. The plant was ruining cotton picking machines so they stopped selling them.

Thank you Becky. I can see where those vines could get tangled in machines and do some damage.
