Take this wallet guide with you when shopping for plants to help you make good choices.
The lists should give you a start—but always be sure to ask if plants are known invaders, and
avoid those that are or could be. Remember, just because it’s pretty doesn’t mean that it isn’t
invasive, and there are new plants being used for horticulture all the time. If you don’t know it,
don’t grow it.
This guide contains two native plant alternatives (N) and one horticultural plant alternative for
every invasive plant to be avoided, but there are many other alternatives that may be suggested
by your local nursery or by contacting the Native Plant Society of Saskatchewan
