Description
Over time, the role of public gardens has evolved from a primary focus on ornamental displays to include plant conservation and preservation of natural habitats. This presentation focuses on the emerging collaboration among public gardens working to identify non-native plant species, especially ornamentals, that may spread from cultivation. A project is now ongoing to improve communication among North American public gardens and raise awareness to ultimately reduce the impact of invasive species in natural areas.
