Simple Tips for Plant Species Identification

Invasive species can populate quite rapidly and will compete aggressively against the native plants for valuable resources. Identifying non-native species of plants and removing them before they get the chance to spread is one of the best preventative measures for maintaining a native plant environment. There are so many plant species in the world, so it can be hard to identify a non-native plant form a native one.

If a certain plant in your landscape or garden is unknown to you, take a picture of it and bring it to your local nursery, they will most likely be able to identify it for you. If you have a smart phone there are many applications that can also help identify a plant for you as well. These days there is always an app for that!
