7 Pretty Plants That Are Actually Ruining Your Garden

Aggressive ivies, invasive weeds, and water-hogging blooms — these plants may look lovely, but when it comes to your yard, the aesthetic appeal might not be worth the damage.

This shrub is the definition of invasive: The blossoms turn into fruit with seed pods that spread abundantly in the wind. They're also super low-maintenance and can survive in harsh conditions (like poor soil or minimal water) so they tend to sprout up fast and take over.


Sure, it looks romantic when it scales old, abandoned walls, but what you might not see is the wear and tear it's doing to those already run-down structures. Ivy can cause damage to just about any kind of siding, including wood, stucco, and cement — oh, and your paint doesn't stand a chance.

These gorgeous flowers tend to overcrowd other plants, which might be fine when they're in full bloom, but the purple, blue blossoms are fleeting — when they're done blooming, they turn black and leave bare patches in your landscape. 

Pachysandra


While this carpet ivy is a lush, green alternative to grass, it also attracts insects called Euonymus Scales. These pests suck the life out of the ivy, usually killing it and leaving dead spaces in your ground coverage.

Beware: this orange flowered alternative to traditional, all-green ivy is super aggressive, can cause damage to wood siding, and sprouts up long distances away from where you originally planted it.

Also known as Morning Glory, this plant kind of looks like a flower, kind of like a weed. And boy is it persistent. The hardy root system makes it nearly impossible to fully remove and sometimes requires several methods before finding success (throwing boiling water on it is just one route).
