Phenology updates: Mile-a-minute, Oriental bittersweet, Tree of heaven, Privet, and Ivy
Mile-a-minute (Persicaria perfoliata) – [plant with triangular leaves] seedlings growing. Please note, AOWCP is still tracking populations of this species. If you see any please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) – seedling (above), flower buds (below)
Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) – leaf out
Privets (Ligustrum spp.) – flower buds forming
Ivy – (Hedera spp.) – Interesting set of photos demonstrating why it might not be a good idea to landscape with ivy. This ivy happens to be growing behind the siding. Second photo is almost 4 feet above the ground
