It’s just crazy irresponsible to signal to people that it’s ok to plant terrible invasives like porcelain berry. Saying ‘it can be agressive’ is insufficient.

Every plant has the capacity to become invasive given the right conditions. To be fair to everyone that visits our site, we must include information to grow plants that may be invasive in some areas, but will barely grow in others.

Those that can't grow the plant will need extra information to get them to grow in certain areas, and excluding that information would be unfair.

It is up to each individual to have self accountability- to be a responsible gardener making sure that any plant that is planted will not harm the area, make sure that it is not invasive in the area, and do all diligent research on the plant before planting.
