What to Plant:
Aggressive Native Plants
Don’t let the term Aggressive fool you. Many gardeners shy away from plants labeled as aggressive, when the term really should be used to identify plants which have a specific function. Aggressively growing plants are a necessary tool in the battle against the multitude of invasive species, allowing a beneficial native to fill in larger areas when cleared of invasives. Planted wisely, these species provide habitat for wildlife, improve soil conditions, and often have the pleasant benefit of adding beauty to our gardens.
