Seattle is ranked as one of the most rat-infested cities in the US. Part of that is of course being a port city. But horticulturists also point to the English ivy, holly and laurel that were planted in local parks and gardens as early as the turn of the 20th century, and that thrived to a point where, along with Himalayan blackberries they have overtaken much of the native landscape, allowing rats escaping from boats plying Puget Sound to prosper.~A.T.
