Yesterday we acquired one of these plants for the first time. I knew little about them and according to the Internet they are considered to be "invasive in Australia, Africa, Indochina, Pacific Islands and India, choking native species and poisoning livestock". As we have no livestock and I can't see much danger of any native species getting asphyxiated I think we are pretty safe.
