Invasive Plants in Georgia – List

Q: Where can I find a list of invasive plants in our area? Every time I see a plant doing well in the wild areas near me I wonder if it would be a good one in my yard.

A: The folks at the Georgia Exotic Pest Plant Council have an extensive list of problematic plants. They group them by invasive behavior and potential, so you can make an educated decision about which ones to keep an eye on and which ones to avoid completely.

You can also download homeowner pamphlets on invasive plants from the Georgia Invasive Species Task Force.
