Billed as a fragrant old-fashioned garden plant, the Dame's Rocket (also known as Sweet Rocket and Summer Lilac, among others) is classified as an invasive species by the National Forest Service and the Wisconsin DNR (for starters).

These are scattered throughout the back yard. I am looking forward to seeing what varieties are represented.
