    The worst non-native plant species tend to be plants that spread easily through vines, underground shoots, or easily dispersed seeds, and which adapt well to the local climate. That said, it is actually good for the environment to select ornamental plants that suit your local climate well, because they require less water and energy to maintain. However, it’s a good idea to be aware of what plants will easily escape into the natural environment and crowd out native plant species, and to avoid those varieties.
