I have had this plant for several years. It looks nice early in the season, and when it is in flower. However, after flowering, you have to cut it to the ground or else the flower heads flop and the foliage goes black-mildew nasty (in my garden). I do overhead water, and the soil is maybe richer than it would normally prefer, but I don't like my plants to schedule my gardening for me. I will say that I have never had this plant self-seed anywhere in my so I'm not so sure it should be considered an invasive. It may very well be sterile.
