Catalogue of Neophytes in Belgium. Updated Excel Version Modifications in bold last modified 16 March Anoda cristata L. In the past decades seen most years, sometimes in abundance, near grain mills in the ports of Gent and Antwerpen, usually from spilled soybeans. However, much decreasing lately last seen in on a demolition site of the former Vamo Mills oil mill by the Albertkanaal in Merksem. Furthermore found on dumps, in arable fields probably introduced with manure , on wasteland or along road verges, most often also as a grain alien. Anoda cristata is also cultivated as an ornamental in Europe but none of the Belgian records seems to be associated with garden waste.
