The transition area between our front lawn and adjacent woods is a 'wild' area filled with woodland grasses, ferns, and mosses – lovely and very low maintenance, until now. Last July I identified Japanese stilt grass in a section about six to eight feet wide and long. Japanese stilt grass is a truly scary invasive that is overtaking roadside edges, drainage culverts, and wooded areas in my neighborhood and elsewhere in Connecticut.
