Following is a laudable overview of invasive Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata) courtesy of the staff of the Chicago Botanic Garden.

May 7, 2010 — Joan O’Shaughnessy, ecologist at the Chicago Botanic Garden, shows us how to identify Garlic Mustard and explains the importance of removing it and other invasive plants to protect our native habitats. You can learn about this and so much more at World Environment Day at the Chicago Botanic Garden on June 5, 2010. Visit chicago-botanic.org for more information.
