Late fall is a good time to battle invasive species that harms native plant communities.



Kansas City, Mo. – Bush honeysuckle remains green as autumn fades and winter arrives, which offers a chance for homeowners to help battle this invasive species. It's easy to spot in early winter as one of the last shrubs to drop leaves.
Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) biologists and other public-land managers work to reduce bush honeysuckle in the Kansas City area because its prolific growth chokes out native plants valuable for their beauty and wildlife habitat.
