Invasive species continue to plague Ohio. As soon as you rip out some garlic mustard, a new patch of kudzu has grown up in a different section of your yard. Instead of maniacal shredding and pesticide wars, try combating unwanted plants by growing some that have always called Ohio home.
The Wild Ones organization is dedicated to educating the public about the beauty of native species and how they can accent your landscape. The Columbus chapter meets at 10 a.m. on the second Saturday of the month at Inniswood Metro Gardens, and gatherings are a great chance to learn about Ohio’s own flowers, shrubs and trees.
