As a comment about Bishop's Weed (Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum'), Janetta62 wrote:

My personal experience with this plant is 'Do NOT put it in your garden!' Very invasive and near impossible to get rid of. Spreads everywhere by roots and if you dig it up to remove from your landscape and miss one tiny speck of root, back it comes with a single minded determination. Two thumbs down scoring for me...

I think whenever folks put out these 'do not plant' warnings, it is really important to mention your growing region in the comment. What might be invasive in one region may be well behaved in another. Also, some plants are on noxious lists in some areas but not others, and that is also important information.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Agreed!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
