RE: burning bush invasive

They're very popular, because they're striking and easy to grow, but they're one of a number of nursery plants that can easily run amok. Others are Norway maple, rose-of-Sharon, English ivy, some of the privets, the common sort of barberry, miscanthus grass, and to a lesser extent some other euonymus, some hollies, and some of the other non-native maples.
