Grow Me Instead is an excellent resource for those looking for alternatives to common Invasive Plants - such as Invasive Daphne laureola pictured above.

The booklet prepared by the Invasive Species Council,  may be downloaded to smart phones or tablets by clicking the link here

Below is a sample of several of the pages showing alternative plants to Daphne laureola ( see top photo)  and Batchelor's Buttons, often included in wildflower seed mix.

Please note that two pages have been put side by side for viewing purposes on this website. The actual PDF booklet has narrower pages.
