Colleen Cirillo

Despite its threatening name, dog-strangling vine won’t harm your dog, but it will wreak havoc in your garden and nearby natural areas. As will garlic mustard, Japanese knotweed and other plants that originated elsewhere and thrive to the detriment of Ontario’s native plants. In this webinar, Colleen Cirillo will define native, non-native and invasive plants; discuss the origins, effects and control options for invasive plants; and present a vision for home gardens as nature reserves and gardeners as biodiversity superheroes.
