"Invasive exotics share several strong traits: fit well within the environment, grow rapidly, mature to produce flowers and seed at an early age, produce great quantities of seed, effectively disperse their seed (via birds, etc.), rampantly spread vegetatively, have no major pest of disease problems. Horticulturally, some of these characteristics are considered quite desirable. Thus there is the absurd irony of various governmental and environmental groups trying hard to control and eradicate in the wild some of the very same species being sold to gardeners all over the US...." — Margie Hunter, Gardening with the Native Plants of Tennessee
