Beautiful flower, but unfortunately it is a thug! I winter sowed this and planted out late in spring. Flowered all summer in my cottage garden. Doing fall clean up, I found it had spread dramatically up to two feet in every direction. It sends out deep runners underneath and through the root systems of other plants. I removed all I could, even digging up the plants it invaded and surrounded. I'm sure now I will be fighting to eliminate this for years to come. Pity, it is a pretty flower.
