Three years ago, I planted three sea hollies, which I had purchased by mail order. I wish I had not planted them because they are invasive and spreading faster than I can dig them up. When they bloom, the stems flop, making them look terrible, anyway. They spread underground, and I've found it's impossible to get all the roots out of the ground.

I agree - i can't get rid of them, and they are not attractive in the least...disappointed i put them in my garden, now nothing else will grow - don't really know what to do :-(...

I've never had a single seedling germinate in the garden...amazing how a plant behaves in one region vs. another. They are very well behaved in Newfoundland.
