Invasive Plants that You Love

LSweeney_moderator | Posted in Mid-Atlantic Gardening on

Is there an invasive plant that you really like and wish it wasn’t invasive so you could enjoy it with abandon? What do you love about it? Have you found a good native or non-invasive alternative that fills the same niche?

    Dame's rocket! Hesperis matronalis. Pretty, fragrant, edible. Visually, our native garden phlox is the obvious replacement, but I do wish I could plant some dame's rocket!

      This is similar to a plant on my list, Lunaria annua!

    Petasites japonicus... I love large leaved perennials! But we live near a wetlands and I don't dare try it...
