Good point. There are a few native plants that are aggressive colonizers; especially in a disturbed area. Nature deals with this through succession, but I don't think the average gardener wants to wait that long.

It's one of the reasons why it's so important to have protected natural areas, where nature keeps things in balance and can provide for the needs of the native fauna that need these kind of plants.
