About Garlic Mustard
            Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata)—due to its ability to aggressively spread, out-compete important native understory species, and create large monocultures, many ecologically important native plant communities are being displaced as garlic mustard spreads. This time of year, garlic mustard will flower and its seed will spread in great amounts.
