  1. Cute flowers, small, not very long lasting, full of perfume , but Very Very invasive bulbs…..In my other town I lived before here, I was a head gardener and the boss lady of the Cafe lounge asked me to get rid of it by poisoning it. I told her that not even poison will kill them, after a long dispute, I ended up digging them by hand…Talk about hell, that was one hell-eva challenge. IT TOOK A WEEK ALMOST for 3 gardeners to dig out a plot about 15 meters long and 2 meters wide….In fact, I am sure that they are still coming ( POPPING ) out somehow even today after 13 years exactly. oNLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS IF NOT MILLIONS OF FLOWER SEEDS WERE IN THE GROUND….. πŸ˜€

    • lol, yes they are a bit invasive but honestly i like plants like that, just have to stay ahead of them and keep them in line in fall. also lily of the valley and spiderwort off top of head that can create problems if left unattended πŸ™‚ … also two of my faves, i use spiderwort for areas i want low maintenance and need some kind of fill. also here in state i am they have wild swamp roses, they are beautiful like old fashioned climbing roses, but wow they go nuts πŸ™‚

    • They self-seed easily and grow rather fast! Because of their cuteness, most of people just let me grow. Most of time they are harmless to garden.

      • I found Aegopodium podagraria (gout weed) and Cerastium tomentosum(snow-in-summer) is more a headache!
