Gardeners' Notes:

I think this is a beautiful and hardy plant but it is invasive by root sprouts up to 6' away. PROBLEM SOLVED! I put it in a large pot and enjoy it's beautiful foliage and flowers all summer. Sorry but Round Up got the wayward sprouts until they stopped coming up. It took a year to eradicate it.
