"Many of the alien plants that have succeeded in North America are not a random sample of all plants that evolved elsewhere, but rather are a subset that were imported specifically because of their unpalatability to insects.... What no one counted on when these pest-free ornamentals were brought into the country was that many would subsequently escape cultivation and replace native plants in natural areas everywhere." — Douglas W. Tallamy, Bringing Nature Home
