Native alternatives to invasive plants by C. Colston Burrell( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The biggest enemy of any garden is not a pest, disease, or poison--it's any plant with tougher survival skills than the plants it competes with. The best way to weed out the invaders is with this fiendishly clever guide to native plants that can seek and destroy the top 100 most unwelcome perennials, grasses, vines, shrubs, and trees. While replacing the invaders, the beautiful, hardy native plants described here also attract native birds and butterflies, while turning away their own enemy invaders. Word-and-picture guides provide tips on care and maintenance, while helpful "at a glance" boxes depict shapes, sizes, best locations, and most attractive features of each native alternative
