Common Invasive Plants on the Treasure Coast

On March 9, 2021, I worked with Extension Agent Kate Rotindo and her Florida Master Gardener volunteers to teach them about invasive pest plants on the Treasure Coast.  As part of this training program, I asked the Master Gardeners to come up with a list of common invasive plants that they were aware of prior to their training.  This list of plants is below.  This is not a list based on any scientific assessment nor is it based on invasiveness of the plant.  It is simply a list of plants these Master Gardener trainees were aware of prior to the training class.  Each plant on this list is linked to research-based information in the IFAS Assessment of Non-native Plants.
