Abstract:
Invasive plants, such as the kudzu vine or oriental bittersweet, are species that have been introduced to North Carolina, either on purpose or accidently, and have spread out of control. A major problem with invasive plants is that they are often innocently used in home landscapes and unintentionally spread into nature. This article discusses the importance of native plant gardening, and how to determine which plants are suitable to different regions of the state.
