 Why is it a noxious weed? This invasive shrub is a noxious weed on the west coast. It can form infestations that outcompete native and forage plants, interfere with reforestation efforts and aid the spread of wildfires into tree canopy layers. With high seed production, established infestations are difficult to eradicate.
