5563325-PPT.jpg
Impacts: 

Crowds out native species, forms dense stands & produces allelopathic compounds that inhibit seed germination of other species. Toxic or unpalatable to many native species

Source? likely to be reintroduced: 

A. petiolata was first recorded in North America in 1868 on Long Island, New York (Nuzzo, 1993). The species was probably introduced by early colonists who valued it for culinary and medicinal purposes (Grieve, 1959). As with many invasive species, anthropogenic disturbance appears to be an important component of the species' spread.
