Planting Guide

Many plants originally introduced for use in ornamental landscapes have since become invasive. To address these challenges, the Northwest Michigan Invasive Species Network recommends this planting guide. Partners developed the list of recommended and prohibited plants based on scientific evidence, collective experience managing natural areas across the region, and with input from the city of Ann Arbor's invasive plant list and the Michigan Natural Features Inventory.
