|Los Angeles Regional Invasive
Ornamental Plant Guide
(Adobe Acrobat Reader is required)
This Guide is produced and distributed by the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers Watershed Council for the primary purpose of educating landscape professionals and the general-public regarding the cultivation, selection, use and management of invasive plants in our local landscape. It is understood that this Guide is of special importance in the “wildland urban interface” areas where natural vegetation and man-made landscapes come into close contact. It is not the intent of the authors to add unnecessary constraints or to discourage the planting of a broad selection of native and non-native species where it is unlikely that their presence would have any effect upon local plant and animal biodiverity. This Guide is provided solely as a reference document and is not intended for regulatory purposes.
