I have found this plant to be a bit invasive. It actually grows to the size of a small bush and will overtake surrounding plants if not kept in check. The blooms are pretty but it can
attract unwelcome insects. I have it on both the east and west sides of the house, and it does well either place. Very hardy. Tolerates heat well.
