Their true colours are not shown on the surface. It is below ground and in tight seed pods that chaos thrives and spreads.
Roots systems that go on for miles patiently wait for the moment when they are ripped from the soil by feeding animals. Worse yet, humans transport them to a new location where they take up yet another homestead in their quest to invade and destroy the natural habitat.
Seeds eaten by birds and disbursed on the wind are deposited miles away to start life anew in unsuspecting soil.
The country, generally speaking, does not need humans plucking invasive plant life to take home to their garden. The thought of taking just one such plant to add to the outside decor can mean disaster for a neighbourhood.
They are beautiful. They are invasive. They do not like to be eradicated. They will do everything in their power to survive.
Be informed. Do some homework. Due diligence is a necessity to stop the spread of invasive plants.
