Was told that they established a foothold here in the NY Harbor area
because the silk floss of the seed capsules was used as a packing
material in crates coming in from China. Might be anecdotal.
Interestingly enough there are a few adult trees whose bloom I enjoy in
a park on the NY side of the river, and I have not seen seedlings or
young trees in the woodland areas there. Wonder if they are weeded out
by the Parks Dept. as part of their native species initiatives or if
conditions are not as much to the trees liking.
