It will easily crowd out any competitors. I'm looking forward to seeing the flowers and the medicinal properties of the plant are interesting. I see that the sap was used by indians as a chewing gum that freshened breath. I think that I'll let my buddy try that.
I've never grown it, so I didn't realize it could be aggressive...I'm glad you decided to keep a couple of drifts of it--drifts look so natural...I guess 'cause they are!

~smile~ LOL!
