Weeds

"A weed is a plant in the wrong place"

It can be invasive or merely a nuisance. Most plants we call weeds are native to our prairies and survive well here. Some have been accidentally imported from other areas or countries, and grow too well in ours. Some are attractive and easy enough to pull out that they can be controlled and others must be eradicated regularly so we won't become overwhelmed.
