Invasive plants of Wisconsin include both non-native and native aggressive species that can and often will dominate a small to large area. The dominance is such that it clearly threatens the diversity of many native ecosystems. Common invasives include:
- Eurasian bush honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.)
- Eurasian buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica and R. frangula)
- garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata)
- reed canary grass (Phalaris arundinacea)
The Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin (IPAW) is the primary group working to address the problems presented by these invasive species, with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources site being another useful source of information.

Famous quotes containing the words invasive and/or plants:
“The frequency of personal questions grows in direct proportion to your increasing girth. . . . No one would ask a man such a personally invasive question as Is your wife having natural childbirth or is she planning to be knocked out? But someone might ask that of you. No matter how much you wish for privacy, your pregnancy is a public event to which everyone feels invited.”
—Jean Marzollo (20th century)
“... feminism is a political term and it must be recognized as such: it is political in womens terms. What are these terms? Essentially it means making connections: between personal power and economic power, between domestic oppression and labor exploitation, between plants and chemicals, feelings and theories; it means making connections between our inside worlds and the outside world.”
—Anica Vesel Mander, U.S. author and feminist, and Anne Kent Rush (b. 1945)
