An experiment with a plant called "Indian Blanket" shows it could be used to fight off an invasive plant commonly called "turnip weed," "giant mustard," or "bastard cabbage." John Ydstie talks with restoration ecologist Mark Simmons of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas about the experiment.
