Great, so now we’re an invasive weed, too.
I wish I was making this up.
Tradescantia pallida or Setcreasea purpurea, commonly called the Wandering Jew is native to America and is found from the southern United States through South America; in many areas it is considered an invasive weed.
The Green Wandering Jew with white flowers is a common and invasive weed in Australia. In New Zealand, the plant Tradescantia fluminensis is known as Wandering Jew. It is an invasive weed in native bush areas and is consided a noxious weed or pest plant that landowners are responsible for eradicating because Tradescantia is distinctive in its ability to colonise in low light areas. It can form a dense mat under forest, which smothers low-growing plants and prevents the natural regeneration of taller native species. If left unchecked it can lead to the destruction of native forests…
…taking over the global plant economy, controlling the plant media and rigging plant-based elections. Behold, the Wandering Jew.
Thanks for the name, yo.
