planting sea buckthorn

Asked June 15, 2016, 10:58 AM EDT

Is there anything I should worry about, since sea berries (sea buckthorn) can be invasive according to some stuff I've read on the internet? I did find this article about the plants in colorado: http://www.ext.colostate.edu/ptlk/1750.html

The information I find states that the root system is very invasive and spreads quickly. It also has thorns. It is not a plant I would recommend. There are many other shrubs will edible berries that are hardy in our area and not invasive.
