The Outliers in the Woods: Buckthorn, Honeysuckle, Multiflora Rose

After an October frost or two, the leaves on many of our woodland plants have changed color or fallen, and it’s a great time of year to scavenge the woods for the color green. In a healthy Iowa woodland, the conspicuous green foilage in October and November often belongs to the outliers: non-native, invasive shrubs and plants such as European Buckthorn, Garlic Mustard, Asiatic Bush Honeysuckle, Multiflora Rose, or Reed Canary Grass.
