Grossmont College put this in a couple of years ago and the invasiveness of this plant is quite evident.

I planted this a few years ago and after a couple of years, it was evident to me that it was invasive. I pulled it out and am keeping an eye out for new starts, and pulling them up. This plant can get away from you quickly. Glad to see it on the invasive list.

In your list of recommended alternatives, Muhlenbergia cappilaris' discription includes "Adverse Factors: May self sow". Can you please tell me how difficult is it to keep under control? I think it is a lovely plant and think it will look great on my foothill property. Thank you for sharing the alternative List.

Haven't seen this plant as a threat to pasture grasses here in Texas. I definitely consider your information as a warning though! Any research/information on this species in Texas?
