    Seconded! They always grow in the cracks between paving because they like the limey mortar.

     I love them, gorgeous subtle flowers and wonderful seedheads in the autumn ... never smelt anything unpleasant from ours.

    They are good for difficult sites such as dry shade.  They seed around and I leave them where i want them. Never invasive.
