In south Florida, Brazilian pepper is number 2 on the do not plant list behind Melalucha(sp.) and just ahead of Mexican poppy.
The poppies are sold all over the Fort Myers area even though it is on the states "Do Not Plant" list. As an invasive, nothing native in terms of fauna get anything from this plant. It creeps everywhere by rhizomes and people say once you plant it, it is yours forever!!!
Same for the pepper.
