While they look nice now, I sure hope you're not sorry later. I dug mine up and put them in planters when I read how bad they sucker. Good luck!

Hello Vickie.......................
Even though it isn't used much in residential gardens it is often used in commercial landscaping. Our experience tells us cutting stems down to a third their height in late winter goes a long way toward controlling height.
I usually dig and pot up those root suckers I cannot use. My neighbors are only too happy to receive them as a gift. That tends to control spread.
These methods give us adequate control out here on the Great Plains. I do not know how well they would work in a milder climate like yours.
