adenophora is a perennial herbaceous exotic shrub which may grow up to 1 or 2 m height.
As one of the worst invasive alien plant species in China, Ageratina
adenophora has caused serious economic losses and reduced the diversity of native species, possibly due to allelopathic interactions.

Slightly more tender, but even more irresistible to butterflies, is the lovely Ageratina

adenophora establishment may be an important part of its invasion process in Chinese forest understories to facilitate it and inhibit native plants.
