We are working on the restoration of the wetland area. We continue to remove blackberries and holly. The resident skunk cabbage, lady ferns, bracken, monkey flower, and others. are beginning to flourish. We have benn offered some juncus influxes grasses. I'm not sure if they might end up being invasive to the natives. What is your recommendation?

Thank you for the information. We were thinking that since we have been careful in selecting natives exclusively that we wanted to continue that route. We have added Oregon Ash, Alder, Big leaf maple, vine maple. and dogwood, red cedar and willow. Shrubs we have introduced are nine bark, Oregon grape, red currant, salal, bleeding heart, etc. I am going to stop because you get the idea. It is fun and rewarding. Digging out blackberries will be a life long task that is also rewarding when you see what was being restrained by their presence. This has been the perfect project for two retired folks during this pandemic.
