SR Planted along Glenasmole Reservoirs in Dublin, "looking wild there in 1902" and "not unlikely to become naturalised in this station" (FDub 1904). Also noted between Sligo and Glencar in 1906 "not near houses" (Druce 1907). Not included in Praeger's (1934b) Census List; new records for six vice-counties in 1957 (Wallace 1960) and widespread by mid-20th C (Atlas 1962). Listed in 1891 catalogue for Daisy Hill Nurseries, Newry, Co. Down; a prize-winning ornamental plant in Britain in mid-19th C, warnings were already being issued about its vigour by the end of that century (Bailey & Conolly 2000); for its history, see also Conolly (1977).
