The plants you bring home from garden centers and nurseries may look beautiful in your landscape, but they might be invasive species that can escape your yard and quickly spread into other areas, becoming an ecological and economic nightmare.

Plant This - Not That is an identification guide written by UF/IFAS Extension horticulture agents to help people find safe alternatives to invasive ornamental plants, including trees, shrubs, vines and groundcovers.

Twenty-two full-color entries feature an invasive plant that is commonly found for sale, including its description, distribution and range, and ecological threat. Each of these bad actors is paired with a list of beautiful non-invasive alternatives to plant instead.

The guide also features an introduction to invasive plants, a list of resources and a detailed bibliography for further study.

Plant This - Not That is a handy thing to have when you're shopping for new plants. Combined with Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM resources, you can make informed decisions that will result in a beautiful landscape that grows in harmony with its natural surroundings.
