EDRR Alert - Ravennagrass

Ravennagrass (Ripidium ravennae (L.) Trinius) was noticed by several sharp observers in the mid-Atlantic region who reported it in 2009, in time for it to be included in the 4th edition of the Plant Invaders book as one of the "Plants to Watch" (p. 130). If you spot this non-native plant outside of landscaped areas, please report your observation to MAEDN.
