Native plant species that can be aggressive

Although native, many of these plant species can dominate natural areas or restorations, particularly if there has been some disturbance or lack of management (such as prescribed burning).

Click on a thumbnail to view photos available for that plant species, or view these plant species sorted by scientific name.

For further plant identification assistance, visit University of Wisconsin Weed ID [exit DNR].
