"A number of invasive pest plants are still for sale through nurseries and internet retailers. Often these plants are sold as cultivars, such as variegated forms, and described as being non-invasive. Unfortunately, many cultivars will revert to wild type — and to their invasive character — once planted." — Linda Chafin, Field Guide to the Rare Plants of Georgia
