|I find this growing in my back woods, usually under cedar trees. It is a Class B noxious weed in Washington, which means you should not encourage it but are not required to eradicate it. I don't find it too invasive and think it is a pretty plant. At the moment, I am simply co-existing with it. It has not (yet?) migrated to my garden beds.
As a side note, this is also a medicinal plant, used as far back as 1000 AD by a French monk, Saint Robert, and by our First Nations people. It repels deer and rabbits. Interestingly, it grows abundantly in areas with high radiation levels, and may absorb, break down, and disperse it.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
