    I would think it falls under this:
    Weapons, chemicals or any items that have the potential for causing harm are NOT allowed
    There is the Q of whether what is invasive in one region is invasive in another. And then there is the Q of being one's brother's keeper Butterfly bush (Buddleia) , for example, is known to be invasive in much of the US, though there are areas where it is not. Yet it is commonly sold in BBSs everywhere it seems. Even knowing its invasive capabilities, many folks will still choose to grow it.

    It's not being my brothers keeper, it's trying to prevent the spread of invasives that choke out and prevent native plants from living. Invasives are fine, in a pot, and their seed prevented somehow from spreading. But common sense knows this is not the case 99% of the time. And many folks don't care about a species being invasive, as long as they want to grow it.

    You know the common one - with a baby plant at the end of every leaf
    Added a Ping. 'Sethos', basically a weed for me, YMMV.

    I added a disclaimer to all my listings that might be considered invasive. However, I grow them all here in my Missouri zone 6 climate without much problem.

    Thank you. I have added a disclaimer.

    Thank for adding the disclaimer. However growing them "without a problem" means nothing. Many states allow invasives to be sold even though they are on that states invasive weed list. However The bamboo is considered illegal to grow in New York. It is the vinca and the lilly of the valley that are on many states invasive lists as well, but I did not see them banned as the bamboo was.
