Certainly, Karen. Can you post a link to the mission?

Yes, sadly all too familiar. Would you be willing to add this spotting to my new mission for Florida Invasives.

An all too familiar story, Ava.

Pernicious invasive in California too. I have a huge one in my back yard and I spend some time every month cutting back the sprigs that shoot up off the roots. The tree is too big to take out (and I'd miss the shade) but I wish the original owners had planted something native.
