Black Swallow Wort is a non-native extremely invasive plant that is particularly hard to eradicate. It is a serious problem in parks and around reservoirs. It has become a plague in ordinary urban gardens, and is expanding at a frightening pace. Most people do not know about it, and therefore cannot identify it and remove it. A concerted effort by all of us to raise the awareness is much needed.
