Minnesota Plants: A Free Webinar Series

From Pesto to Pest: Horticultural Introductions and Plant Species Invasions | Alex Eilts, Ecologist/Filmmaker/Science Communicator

Whether we know it or not, our gardens are global in their scope. Hostas and daylilies from East Asia. Roses and daffodils from Europe. Even petunias from South America or impatiens from Africa. However, these introductions have also created some of our least loved weeds, including garlic mustard, buckthorn, and purple loosestrife. How do we approach exotic species as gardeners, and what is our responsibility in selecting plants for our gardens? You don't need to exclusively select native species to reduce your impact. We'll talk about what it means for a species to be invasive versus exotic, and how to think about potential impacts as you plan and plant your garden.
