This species has naturalized in 8 states. Unlike L. camara, which is one of the world's worst weeds, L. montevidensis does not appear to be ecologically invasive in the US.

I have had this plant for 4-5 years, planted inground, full sun. Name is apt, as flowers are a swirl of lavender tones, from palest (almost white) to medium lavender. Butterflies love it.
