With reference to the previous note... Yes, but A. miser is also a native species that occurs in moist meadows and mountain slopes, in British Columbia and Alberta, and south to Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and South Dakota (viz. E. H. Moss and J. G. Packer, Flora of Alberta). The inclusion of native species on Canada's "noxious weed list" is a rather questionable practice.
