Explore the process of identifying new threats from invasive plants. Because of its diverse plant collections, the Arboretum has the opportunity to observe and understand the behavior of a wide variety of plants. Occasionally, plants from horticultural landscapes are discovered “volunteering” in our natural areas. Kurt Dreisilker, will share some examples that have been observed at the Arboretum, discuss the stories and habits of these plants and explain whether those plants might be considered invasive.
