Exotic Pest Plants come into California on a continuous basis. Some are introduced intentionally as ornamentals or for other purposes; others stow away on ships, on the tires of vehicles, in packing material, or are introduced by other means. Most remain in limited populations in their new environment, but occasionally a species thrives too well, wreaking havoc on the native ecosystem.
