    This plant is very easy from seed and basically an attractive plant—flowers, leaves and seed pods are all pretty. For the first 4 years, I was really glad to have it. But I am becoming a bit amazed at how steadily and easily it spreads. I am approaching the place where I am not so glad to see new ones anymore, and I have pretty awful clay soil. It especially takes over if you have bare ground anywhere nearby. If you are looking for a plant that is attractive and gives good coverage and you don’t care if you have lots of them, this is a great plant. Otherwise you might want to be sparing in how many you plant.
