    The trick is trying to anticipate which plants are liable to explode in a given region, avoid establishing those. Probably this has never happened, even if an individual managed to accurately size a future nuisance plant up there would have still been the need to get everyone else to abstain from planting it in the as-yet non-infested region.

    Not going to happen is it? I agree, Ron B. We still have garden centres & Home Depot selling "Lamiastrum", for goodness sake.
