      Hi Vicky,
      The 2 plants are from different families, so attributes of the one do not necessarily reflect attributes of the other. I dunno, you’re talking to the wrong person regarding invasive plants. I just don’t think of it that way. I think of it as rampant volunteerism, which switches the focus to the utility of the plants. If we use them, then we like it that they volunteer.
