    Acanthus or Bears Breeches.  Read the other current thread on it before buying one.

    Once you get it going it's a bug**r to get rid of.  Still trying to eradicate mine after 3 yeaars.

    Acanthus mollis.  It is propagated by root cuttings, so any bit of root will regrow. It also spreads by seed, so dead head it and make sure the seeds do not drop.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • Thanks everyone, I wanted to get one for a big planter but it sounds like it would grow out of it very quickly!
