"Well, as I have stated in the past, "Native is not native at all"... I mean, let's get real here... We, along with critters, have move seed and pollen around the planet so much that it now just comes down to hardiness, Ph, light and not much more... What's the difference if a bird carries a seed or a man carries it??? None... So much for natives, unless anyone here is a thousand or two thousand years old and can tell us what was growing in any given place on the planet back then... And then, who cares???

Sorry... Just narrow thinkin' on some folks part..." (Bobert)...

On whose part? There's a huge difference in the effect that humans (such as the brave but misled Victorian plant-hunters) versus, say, birds on the wing can have.
