Default Invasive Plant List

I was not sure in which forum I should post this. Here seemed as good as any.

Here is a list of invasive plants ranked by the seriousness of the threat. This is from PA, but I'm sure it would apply to many surrounding areas:

Purple Loosestrife GONE
Dames rocket??? Known as Wild phlox??? If so might have that one yet
Yellow flag I DO HAVE. Its clump being very thick almost woody I could see how that would take over nearby plants if left to do so but does it spread other than moving into and taking over it's neighboring plants?

Same as moneywort...moves into others but does it spread by birds or any way else?

And CHICKWEED this you may need to come help me with as it keeps on keeping on and so do I!

Going out to do some more ripping and tearing of the greens

Sorry you both have all of those to contend with--well your states do in general--hopefully you don't have them all individually.
