From other sources
Alien species Baccharis halimifolia is an exotic species with North American origins, which was introduced in Europe during the 17th century as a decorative plant. The plant is loved by ornamental plant cultivators on the coast for its tolerance to saline conditions and its ability to grow on different substrates. The first appearance of the species in Belgium dates back to 1924, when the species had been planted on the dunes of Raversijde. Since then the plant has been commonly found in the wild in the vicinity of planted specimens. [details]
