Don't kill me! 9 native plants often mistaken for invasive species Keep 'em.
There is a wealth of "weeds" (including improved selections) for every season that grow happily in the wild or in a cultivated landscape. Some are dainty and diminutive like the blue-eyed grass, Sisyrinchium species (it grows only 4 to 12 inches tall), and others are big and bold like giant Joe-Pye weed (Eupatorium purpureum) , which grows up to 9 feet tall with flower heads that are 1 foot long and 6 inches across. If you decide to include some choice native perennials or grasses in your garden, make sure to purchase them from a nursery or mail order catalogue rather than digging them up from the wild. Local native plant societies usually list sources or offer plants for sale. They also have lists of exotic weeds that are considered invasive and should not be planted in your garden including kudzu and the species rose,
