Native/Invasive Debates

Garden Rant has a good one again today--on the reactionism between "native only" gardeners to discussions that include acceptance of non-natives in the garden. GR went to the "source," Doug Tallamy (his book is in my recommended list) to air the dirty laundry and get clarification. A good read. As one who plants natives as much as possible but also plants cultivars and occasional non-natives (for reasons just as he clarifies), I support his arguments one hundred percent.
