Default Broom, noxious weed?

I see Sweet Broom for sale in N. California nurseries, it is considered
a noxious weed in Washington state and work parties try to eradicate it.
If I planted some in my garden would it be possible to control it's spread?

Same thing as Scotch Broom, Cytisus scoparius? (grumble mumble, common names,
grumble mumble) http://www.invasivespecies.gov/profiles/scotchbrm.shtml

Yes, it's invasive, and the pollen is also a pretty good allergen. Why
buy trouble?
