Alien?

Should this get an "Alien" tag?

Its distribution in Wiki is "Mediterranean Basin, including the island of Crete."

It is on the alert list for Australia, and a pest in Chile and Argentina.

Blue hound’s tongue is on the Alert List for Environmental Weeds, a list of 28 nonnative plants that threaten biodiversity and cause other environmental damage. Although only in the early stages of establishment, these weeds have the potential to seriously degrade Australia’s ecosystems.
