"What is the difference between prohibited and regulated invasive species?

Prohibited invasive species cannot be knowingly possessed with the intent to sell, import, purchase,
transport or introduce. In addition, no person shall sell, import, purchase, transport, introduce or
propagate prohibited invasive species.

Regulated invasive species, on the other hand, are species which cannot be knowingly introduced into a free-living state, or introduced by a means that one should have known would lead to such an introduction, although such species shall be legal to possess, sell, buy, propagate and transport.

Wow, why not give someone in Westchester county, NY plants suggestions which thrive in Iceland? Or what about plants selections that thrive in Brazil or Indonesia?

All plants are geographical sensitive.

Just curious, though it's a bit OT: why put up the fence just to hide it? Why not just use hedges to begin with?

I would plant some soft evergreen on each side because you'd be surprised what will grow right into the fence, as stated multiple times above. I have damage to my fence from trying to remove a ROOT that grew around the bottom of the fence.

Are you thinking of a certain type of arborvatie?

Euonymus kiautschovicus 'Manhattan' - Plant Finder

1) It produces fruit which is nice.

2) It isn't poisonous, another plus.

3) It isn't invasion like Euonymus alatus, the burning bush, which is now banned. Finally.

If you don't mind risking a die back every couple of years, it's fine. We had one October snowstorm that was a shock to many plants. Thankfully, it doesn't happen too often.

Forget Winter Creeper, it's invasive. https://www.invasiveplantatlas.org/s....html?sub=3024

On top of that winter creeper is heavy which will destroy your fence fast.
Does a dieback mean death, or does it mean it will come back? Are you talking about heavy wet snow. Because that can happen anytime during the winter.

The nice thing about arborvitae is that they it bend to the ground with heavy snow, but not snap.

Dieback means the plant dies back from the leaves, but the roots survive. Usually, it does come back.

It could be anything - a sudden cold snap in fall or spring, deep freeze like an Arctic Blast, or a wet snow.

Yes, but I'm going to suggest bamboo instead.

Why give legal advice that may be pertinent to only a tiny fraction of the readers here? Making blanket claims that a certain plant is banned as if that was a universal truth is simply wrong. The OP's location has not been discussed.

Kokonutty I think since you came in late to the conversation you might have skipped over it but OP's location actually was discussed earlier on in the conversation, these are her posts about her location:

I did not zero in on the location as it is not in the OP's profile but did see the zone references which have nothing to do with political boundaries. Nonetheless this is an open forum so any reference to laws and other governmental regulations should reference those particulars rather than simply be stated quite generally or universally. Readers are concerned with a much wider scope than a single poster's situation.
