Naivety, ignorance or contempt. People think a plant is "Pretty" so they buy it and plant it in their garden. They haven't realised that the nursery is actively encouraging the destruction of their local bushland. Exotic nurseries sell plants under the guise of "drought tolerant" or "easy maintenance". Generally speaking this really means will be spread by seed and outcompete your local bushland. These nurseries also sell "Natives". But don't be fooled. For starters Native means from your country. It does not mean from your area in the country. And a plant that is endemic to your area but growing a long way away is not provenant to your area, it probly has a different genetic makeup to the provenant ones even though it may be the same species. A better way to describe local plants is Indigenous, endemic or provenant, although this termininology itself is by no means perfect. In most nurseries "Native" means Hybridised and genetically modified/manipulated cultivars. The Provenant plants are purposefull ie. they play an important role in your local ecosystem. If/When these Mutant natives that the nurseries have grown breed with the Provenant ones they are destroying the local gene pool. And can not be killed by bush regenerators because they can not be identified as weeds. A good example of that is with Grevillias. Exotic plant nurseries also encourage people to grow Natives that are not endemic to the area, So plants like Acacia saligna from the west coast of Australia are now terrible weeds in Eastern Australia. These are also very hard to I'D from Provenant endemic indigenious natives. They might only be a different species of a genus or even just a different subspecies, with very little difference in its identifiable features. Also the government makes it expensive to get Indigenous seed collecting licences, for reasonable reasons.
