|@Lioba, I totally understand your thinking. I've been confused by the term, "invasive," and so have done a bit of research on it to try to understand better. Evidently, plants that simply send out seeds and multiply a LOT are considered to be "aggressive." While "invasive" plants are not only aggressive, but also block out the growth of indigenous plants so that eventually, there are no more and only the invasive species remains. Some definitions also apply invasive to plants that aren't that aggressive.
I believe the term is applied in the same way to birds, frogs and other creatures. A very important definition.

|@joannakat Yes I read that and why barberry should not be banned. This is information given to me from my local Agway by the way. She also told be Burning Bush was also banned from sale. They do the same thing. Should I do a similar post for Burning Bush?
Thank you for your support and definition research into this matter. But this fight I'm not taking up with .gov
I wanted folks in NYS to know they may eventually not see this plant in nurseries anymore and may have to get it another way. Oops did I say that?
Its easy for me to believe in miracles when science can't explain why a blade of grass has its shape and that is just one plant and one attribute.
