A few starting comments

I'm writing this blog with some trepidation. On one hand I care a fair amount about getting rid of invasives, and on the other hand I have a daunting task before me to recruit others to help get rid of the bad guys. It's work. Rewarding, but work. Well, it's good exercise, too. And a place looks better when it's not overgrown with some nasty plant that chokes out the wild profusion of a native habitat.

I have a question: Why are so many invasives named Japanese? Japanese honeysuckle, Japanese stilt grass, Japanese knotweed, others. They can't all be from Japan...
