A previous owner of our home planted soapwort in the backyard. It is so incredibly invasive where I live (zone 5, Denver, Colorado) It has a very pretty flower, but I just can't stand it anymore. I am in the process of ripping it all out. I'm sure it will take a while sifting through all the soil to get the roots out. Every time I turn around, there is soapwort sprouting up all over the place. UUGGGGHHH!!! I would recommend NOT planting this.
As I have mentioned before, plants behave differently depending on where they are grown. Seems soapwort are NOT recommended in the Colorado area. Not so in other parts of the world where they are quite well behaved. Nearly all garden plants have the potential to be invasive in some part of the world, where they are most happy.
