THAT is the reason I am unsure of weather I want it at all ! I can picture it popping up all over in the lawn once it finds its way under the plastic edging and I'm SURE it will...
I expect to be weeding mine out of that area for a while too. I do want to grow it--but in a pot.

It is native, but probably not the best for a small garden. I could put it in the hedgerow far from the house, but not sure that I will.

Hmmmmm SAGE You better not toss it in the woods......

I agree. It may be native, but I'm not sure its native range is this far north. Also, it is likely not appropriate in the woodland setting should it take off there.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...

Off with its head I say!!! Chop it off at the base and watch it writhe in pain.... then toss it where ever you tossed it last winter and see what happens in spring of 20111!!! Ten to one odds it does an Arnold and comes back.
