As a comment about Giant Fleeceflower (Koenigia alpina), brightwork wrote:

I have a question about this plant. I cannot find it in the American Horticultural Society "A--Z" Garden Plants encyclopedia under any of its names. My wife suggests that this is because this is not considered a "garden plant," but rather an invasive weed. Can anyone comment on whether or not this is a desirable "shrub" for a garden setting? Thanks.

This is not the invasive weed you are thinking about try Acongonon alpinum.
