ERG's invasives pages point out that various invasive species are either prohibited or regulated in other states, particularly those in the northeast and upper midwest. But Indiana does not like to regulate and so you can find invasives like Japanese Barberry, Bush Honeysuckle, and Burning Bush for sale at local garden and home centers. But multiflora rose is different (Indiana Code, § 14-24-12-5):
Sec. 5. (a) Except as provided in section 6 of this chapter, a person may not plant any variety of rosa multiflora in Indiana unless the person has a permit issued by the division director authorizing the planting of the variety of rosa multiflora. (b) The only purpose for which the division director may issue a permit authorizing the planting of rosa multiflora under subsection (a) is for the use of rosa multiflora in controlled experiments.
Multiflora rose is extremely prolific and can form impenetrable thickets that exclude native plant species. This exotic rose readily invades open woodlands, forest edges, successional fields, savannas and prairies that have been subjected to land disturbance.
