  1. I don’t remember seeing this, but it must be around, since several sites list it as invasive and even noxious in my area. Funny how that happens — one person’s useful, pretty, or fragrant plant becomes another’s headache. I’ve even found a few of our native plants that have become invasive elsewhere — thankfully, people are becoming more aware and more careful about such matters.

    Despite all that, this one is attractive, and I’m going to try and find it.

    • It is native here, and has actually declined over the years. It can be invasive to farmers, and of course other countries where it has found its way and causes issues as you say.
