UC Professor Works to Bring Native Plants Back to Cincinnati

Cincinnati is being invaded! But not by monsters or zombies. Rather, the city is being invaded by several kinds of invasive plants that are killing off the native species in local parks such as Burnet Woods. The invasive plants include Amur honeysuckle, Japanese honeysuckle, winter creeper euonymus, English ivy, garlic mustard, Callery pear, lesser celandine, common periwinkle and others.
