About PlantWise

PlantWise is a provincial program that supports the (ornamental) horticulture industry's transition to become invasive-free, and is helping gardeners and industry understand which plants are invasive and harmful to our communities, and to make 'PlantWise' choices. To achieve these goals, the Invasive Species Council of BC works collaboratively with plant growers, retailers, specifiers, and landscapers across BC.

Together we are making a difference!
In 2014 the PlantWise message was shared at 244 education and outreach events in 78 communities across BC. Approximately 5812 in-person PlantWise interactions were completed by ISCBC staff and PlantWise Ambassadors, resulting in 1410 verbal and 982 written commitments. An estimated 19,296 gardeners, youth, professionals, horticulture industry members and the general public were reached!

Why be concerned about invasive plants? 
Invasive plants are usually as beautiful and functional as non-invasive plants, making them hard to differentiate. They are recognized globally as the second greatest threat to biodiversity! Invasive plants have unique characteristics that other plants lack, allowing them to out-compete native vegetation and cause environmental and economic harm.

Thank you for being PlantWise! Together we are making a difference.
