[[2]] Link to Wikipedia, Lepidium latifolium - "...native to southern Europe, Mediterranean countries and Asia as far east as the Himalayas. It is an introduced species in North America, where it grows throughout the United States and Mexico, and Australia.

"...most invasive in wetland habitat, including riparian zone; from there it easily spreads to other ecosystems, such as sagebrush.[2] It is perceived as a threat to salt marshes in southern New Hampshire..."
