Unfortunately it was not too difficult to find them during my recent trip with Pritchard through
Wegerzyn Gardens MetroPark, 1301 E. Siebenthaler Ave. in Dayton.
MetroPark staff members and volunteers have fought theses invaders found among those native to Ohio’s ecosystem for years.
Watch the video above to learn what these weeds are and why Pritchard says they should be yanked from your garden ASAP.
