Invasive Plants In Massachusetts

Reading through Tangled Bank is lots of fun. I found a page about invasive plants of Massachusetts, which interests me a great deal since I live in Massachusetts. I have had personal run-ins with quite a few of these invasive plants, in particular multiflora rose and Japanese knotweed. Knotweed is especially invasive. It looks a bit like bamboo.

Here's a more detailed list of invasive plants in Massachusetts. I'm surprised bindweed isn't on the list. That one looks like morning glory, and it's a pain to get rid of. Wild carrot isn't on the list, either, and it's a big problem out here.
