Bought this on impulse despite knowing this family is a thuggish one.

Im fairly sure ??ou will agree this too is invasive but I was it is well behaved.  image

So, folks, do you grow it?   Have you grown it?

    One of my customers grows it Verdun and it seems fairly well behaved.  Its in a sunny border, sandy soil and seems happy enough image

  • As my Joe Pye does so well thought I'd get a chocolate last year.  Gave it huge pile of mulch but lost it last winter, as it was not too cold I decided to give up on that idea up here.

    Did not survive here either, though the ordinary one does well.

    I've got 4 of these around my garden & have never found them thuggish, although that might be something to do with the "pan" 18 inches down (thanks, builders!).Must admit it's one of my favourite plants.

    I have grown it for several years and have found it very well behaved in a number of different situations. It is easily reproduced from cuttings, although I am sure division would work as well.
