Lovely but invasive
by Dee Curcio
I grew this n Wenatchee, WA. It grew easily, a bit too happily, the next year I found it in several beds and a friend from BLM advised me it is considered invasive in many states.; so I eradicated it from my yard.

The plants produce very beautiful flowers and lots of them. They do not produce too much of a scent. I can't speak about the previous post by someone about them being invasive as I had planted mine in a large pot. I did not find any coming up the next year so I guess I got lucky. I would definitely plant these again as they add beauty to my yard.
