Fountaingrass is considered a serious invasive plant.
"Fountaingrass is a large grass that produces lots of seeds that spreads rapidly from cultivation into nearby disturbed areas, and eventually into natural habitats. It often forms dense stands and aggressively competes with native species, especially perennial grasses and seasonal annuals, for space, water, and nutrients... It has been declared as a state noxious weed by Hawaii and Nevada."
