When I went to the Amish Nurseries a while back, with Isobelle GoLightly's Lady, one of the plants I picked up was False Spirea. As you can see, it's a gorgeous plant. However, it has turned out to be a good illustration of how invasive plants get into our native habitat. Yup, it's not a native plant. And, it is aggressive and spreads rapidly.
I didn't know that when I bought it, and neither, probably, would anyone else who bought the same type of plant. I know now, and I'll keep mine under strict control, but there will be some who won't, and the plant will escape into the wild. I guess you can't stop nurseries from selling plants like this, but, I wish that they would at least give people some warning about them
