Garlic mustard, a plant native to Europe, spreads quickly in wooded areas of our region, crowding out native plants. IMA has identified it as particularly invasive but also very receptive to hand removal. The fact that it is easy to identify by its small white flowers, heart shaped leaves, and toothpick-like seed pods and easy to remove by simply pulling the stem make it a perfect choice for removal by scouts.
