- Numerous cases have been reported of naturalization by exotic ornamental plants. To obtain basic data about how
those plants affect the ecosystems of Korea, we compiled a list of 78 species categorized as ornamentals from 309 naturalized
species in Korea and analyzed their life forms, origin, and their current global status of naturalization and regulation. Plants
belonging to Compositae comprised the largest group, with 23 species. In all, 75 species were considered herbaceous, and
perennial species out-numbered annuals and biennials. Most species originated from Europe and North America. Except for
Houttuynia cordata, the other 77 species were naturalized in other countries as well. Furthermore, 34 species, including Aster
pilosus and Solidago altissima, have been subject to legal restrictions or classified as alert species in Korea or other countries.
Therefore, monitoring may be required to prevent spread of those species, especially for species which have not been managed
under domestic law up to now.
