Invasive plants talk at library

Feb 17, 2014
Purple loosestrife

Camden — Your first glance at the list of forbidden plants will probably shock you. Not only the gorgeous but widely reviled purple loosestrife, but even burning bush. Really, that spectacular autumn red you have planted by your house. And purple barberry, which looks so pretty next to your apple-green hostas. So many friends, it turns out, are actually foes.

Back by popular demand, Rebecca Jacobs, who is education coordinator for the Knox-Lincoln Soil and Conservation District, will talk at the fifth and final program in the Camden Garden Club’s Winter Horticulture Series about how to avoid invasive plants – or at least not lose the battle.

Co-sponsored by the Camden Library, the program next Tuesday, Feb. 25, will start at 10 a.m. in the library’s Picker Room. All are welcome.

Camden Garden Club is entering its 99th year and is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc. Meetings, including more programs for anyone interested, begin again each April, and end in October.
