Neutral Oaxacan On Oct 9, 2012, Oaxacan from Ocala, FL (Zone 8a) wrote:

A useful healthy groundcover for "difficult" spots. Not suitable for walkways. Listed as invasive and will cover everything in shady areas if not kept in check. Would not like to see it let go in the wild. Dies back after frost but returns in Spring. Have had this plant for seven years and it has never been out of control. Easy to remove by hand. Grows in Ocala, Florida.
