A small patch of Mexican Elderberry planted at a state park has become invasive in adjoining natural dry forest (mid elevation, Hawaii). We have cut trees down and tried several herbicides to kill the regrowth from the stumps, but it just keeps coming back! Be aware this plant may become invasive in cool, dry environments, difficult to kill if drought stressed.

This plant or small tree grows wild in Fl. evevry where the birds drop the seed, very prolific but easily controlled. Some make jellies from the ripe fruit.
