prohibited plants

at least Germany seems not hysterical about forbidden plants - for us 
it's mostly about the classical drugs - only trouble about that: it's 
actually quite difficult to get rid of Papaver somniferum in some areas, 
as many gardeners allow it for the pretty flowers and rather beautiful 
seed heads - and try to keep that seedmonster under control if both 
neighbors have it seeding freely...

there is a EU list of 37 "unwanted" species, plants and animals, which 
definitely is not present in the awareness of the public, with the most 
known and obvious plant candidates would be once again 2 Heracleums, 
Eichornia Crassipes and, surprise, Kudzu. Most interesting for the List 
should be Lysichiton americanus. I have no idea if this is enforced in 
any way - I guess the racoons on the animal side of the list would choke 
to death from laughing at the idea anyone could get rid of them...

Southern Germany
Likely zone 7a
