This pretty plant is dangerous — and it's growing in more than a dozen Mass. communities
The plant has also invaded several other states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Maine, Oregon, and Washington, according to research from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It first landed in the United States from Asia and Europe in the early 20th century as an ornamental garden plant, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation said.Fortunately, Forman Orth said, the number of cases in Massachusetts is slowly decreasing.
"People should be aware of what it looks like, and if they see it they should report it," Forman Orth said, "but as long as they avoid contact with it, there shouldn't be any significant issues."Elise Takahama can be reached at email@example.com.

Iris society show Saturday in Auburn
AUBURN - The Annual Maine Iris Society Show will take place from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 16, in the cafeteria of Auburn Middle School, 38 Falcon Drive.
Admission is free. The entrance is in the back of the school.
Irises will be displayed and judged as individual flower stalks and interpretive floral arrangements. A display of peony flowers and hosta leaves will also be staged. Because of this year's weather, it is expected that the show will feature Siberian irises and later blooming tall Bearded irises.
Several people's choice categories allow attendees to vote on their favorites. Hybridizers in the society will have seedlings of the flowers they have bred. A sale of median iris rhizomes, potted perennials and annuals will accompany the show.

Dickson City gardener combines Italian roots, green thumb to grow vegetables, fruits and flowers
Williamsport, where Scinicariello met his future wife, Ann Marie, when he was placed in her sixth-grade class as a 15-year-old immigrant.
They remained friends even as Scinicariello left school after that year (he later earned a GED) and they each married others. Ann Marie Scinicariello moved with her husband to Northeast Pennsylvania, and she and Joe Scinicariello reconnected years later as their spouses passed on.
Married for 25 years this May, the Scinicariellos live in a quiet Dickson City neighborhood where vegetables, fruits and herbs grow throughout their yard.
"Gardening is something either you love or you don't, because if you don't, your garden is going to be full of weeds," Joe Scinicariello said. "But if you love it, it's going to take up a lot of your spare time, and eventually you'll get to the point where you love doing it."
After moving from Italy, Scinicariello's father continued to plant, although just a garden for the family this time. He grew tomatoes, beans and "the normal stuff," his son recalled.
"He really didn't teach much," Scinicariello said. "You just followed him around and you learned."
But boy did he learn. Ann Marie Scinicariello remembers that first season after they married, when her husband asked to plant a 4-foot-by-8-foot garden.
"Everything was delicious and wonderful," she recalled. "I said, ‘Next year, plant the whole backyard. I don't care.'"
A garden plot now runs almost the length of the backyard, flanked by fruit trees (Asian pear and McIntosh apple), grape vines and raspberries. Carefully planted rows draw green lines in the dirt where vegetables such as tomatoes, onions, peas, beans, cabbage, spinach, zucchini and cucumbers shoot up from the ground.
At the corner of his house, sits Scinicariello's herb garden, where basil and parsley grow in repurposed cinderblocks, which also protect them from the lawnmower. He also planted a few gladiolus in with the vegetables and has roses, lilies and irises growing elsewhere.
"I like flowers in my garden," Scinicariello said.
The diversity in that garden means Sci... May 24, 2018
As May Flowers Bloom, A Closer Look at White House Gardens Past and Present
Their August 1913 plan included conifers, boxwoods, annuals, perennials, and a reflecting pool.
Mrs. Wilson passed away in 1914, and her garden remained unplanted for two years. While President John F. Kennedy was in office, the garden was redesigned yet again, later finished during Lyndon B. Johnson's presidency. It features seasonal flowers and ornamental hedges to this day.
The Rose Garden
President Kennedy was also responsible for an update to the famed Rose Garden outside the Oval Office. He wanted an outdoor space to use for official ceremonies, and Rachel Lambert Mellon signed on to redesign the Rose Garden in August 1961 with the goal of making it both beautiful and functional.
Mellon worked with Irwin M. Williams of the National Park Service, who became the White House's head gardener for nearly 50 years. Mellon had four months to make the transformation, and in that time Williams transplanted magnolias from the tidal basin to the Rose Garden at her request. He also changed the steps to allow a platform for the President to stand on and see the crowd without seeming elevated above them, and he planted the beds with some of the varieties noted in Thomas Jefferson's journal.
Today, the Rose Garden is a lawn lined with boxwood hedges, magnolias, and crabapple trees. It can hold up to 1,000 spectators for special events.
Neglected at times, but often reappearing, is the White House Kitchen Garden. President John Adams planted the first vegetable garden in 1797 for the practical matter of feeding guests on a bud...
