Around here, it's a weed. Every spring I have to pull a few out of the ground, and hope it doesn't come back.

A weed???? I have tried so many times over the years to grow one of these things, they don't like indoor conditions...and here you are just ripping them up...sheesh...enough to drive a person insane...

These are beautiful trees when they are in bloom and the hummingbirds love them. The foliage is so unique and lacy and they make a beautiful light shade - not dense at all. BUT they are the messiest trees that I have encountered dropping something year round. And claypa is right. The seeds grow easily and I always used pre-emergent around the trees to discourage them.
