- Results of the studies on the occurrence of the North American plant species Amorpha fruticosa L. (Fabaceae Juss.) in the south of the Russian Far East are shown. Today the species is used in landscaping in 26 inhabited localities of Primorsky krai. It is absent in natural phytocoenoses and inhabits anthropogenic landscapes. By the degree of naturalization, the species may be assigned to the group of epekophytes. Investigations show potential opportunities for wide dispersal by vegetative reproduction. For prevention of its transition to the group of aggressive agriophytes, the constant control and observation of this potentially invasive species are needed.
