Homo Gardenensis, can be stubborn, ill-behaved, and prickly.
Reproduces freely.
Will tolerate nearly all climates, elevations, and soils but is picky about what neighbors it will tolerate.
Can be found living almost entirely submerged in water as well as in high deserts.
Easily identified by their propensity for manipulating the environment to their own ends, if left unattended Homo Gardenensis will often form large, dense colonies.
Although not a friendly host plant for many insects, snakes, or many species of toothed large reptiles and mammals, some will provide homes and food for birds, elephants, chickens, ducks, geese, cats, horses, cattle, gerbils, fish, and dogs.
Blooms most profusely in mild spring weather.
Grown in pairs, it can easily become tall and leggy.
Limbs can become quite tangled.
However, annual pruning is a difficult and messy prospect, best left to the professionals.

There's a couple of DG'rs that will probably recognize those feet. Even some folks who the feet don't belong to...
