    I would agree.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Yep.  I got one last year.  Lovely and fern like.  Apparently they sucker but none so far for me.  They have some next to the car park in a local park and they seem to have taken over.

    Once established they are prolific suckerers [ is that a word? ], but i still like them. I have grown several from the suckers of the original.

    I don't mind if it does become a suckerer (I'm using it now).

    Well, if it wasn't a word, it is now.

    It certainly does try for world domination.
    I've got Sorbaria 'Sem' ... and it's in a very large pot which is buried in a border.

    At least twice a year I circumnavigate the pot with a sharp spade and sever the runners and pull them all out.

    I do like it, especially in spring, but I wouldn't plant one without some sort of restriction ... and I've got a large garden.
