Non-invasive Ornamental Plants for an Eco-friendly Garden

Image of Clematis OrnamentalSome of the most popular ornamental plants viz., tallowtree, privet, climbing fern, honeysuckle, etc., grown in our gardens are ferociously invasive. These ornamentals can be a grave threat to the environment as well.

Known as exotic invasive species, these plants, brought from every corner of the world into the United States within the last few centuries, have begun strangling forestland tree canopies and crowding out native fauna on which many insects and other animals depend for survival. The result is a radically altered forest ecosystem.

Recently, Kerry Smith, an Alabama Cooperative Extension System home grounds associate and coordinator of the Alabama Master Gardener Program compiled a list of noninvasive ornamental alternatives to many of these species.

In his study, Smith recommends ornamental species which are invasive, some of which include Fothergilla, Vibernums, Chinese Privet, Podocarpus, Japanese Climbing fern, Clematis, Japanese Honeysuckle, etc. Get to know more about Non-invasive ornamentals
