I hear morning glories are invasive in the south and we cant get them to overwinter here.
Count your blessings about morning glories not overwintering where you are! A bit like being spared the ravages of a horde of Huns. That Japanese purple morning glory tries to engulf EVERYTHING. Seeds seeds and more and more hallucinogenic seeds!

Wisteria can get a bit aggressive in the wrong (or right) place.

There's one here in California that's H U G E, covering literally acres, but it took like 100 years to do it.

On the other hand, an old lady back in Ohio kept hers trimmed to this gnarly looking tree for decades and it was really pretty when it bloomed.

(Gee @Nik333 , I like them too! It's nice agree on something once in a while! )

Here's a picture of that one in Sierra Madre, new Los Angeles.

Probably beautiful. Are they worried that trimming it will kill it? They usually take trimming well.

I like those, too. A wire fence was covered in them for about 30 feet horizontally. Just took mowing the lawn to keep them reined in.

Perhaps. I don't know if it is clearly defined but my lay interpretation mean a species that is not native. I imagine that there are hundreds of species that have been introduced by settlers with varying degrees of impact ranging from relatively peaceful integration to trying to take over the place to, in some cases, actually being damaging.


Hmmm . . .

Bingo for lenaitch!


Quote:
A plant that is both non-native and able to establish on many sites, grow quickly, and spread to the point of disrupting plant communities or ecosystems. Note: From the Presidential Executive Order 13112 (February 1999): 'An invasive species is defined as a species that is 1) non-native (or alien) to the ecosystem under consideration and 2) whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.' In contrast to item 2) of the Executive Order, which includes plants invasive in agricultural settings, the Connecticut Invasive Plant Working Group lists non-native plants as invasive only if they invade minimally managed (natural) areas.
