Asclepiasspeciosa (Apocynaceae, Asclepiadoideae): a rare or unrecognized alien species in Europe?
An exhaustive analysis of morphological characteristics and differences between A.speciosa and A.syriaca is presented, predicting that the effect of A. Speciosa on native habitats and communities, and its economic impact, are comparable to those of the highly invasive A. Syriaca.
