One of my sisters gave me a start of this plant from her garden years ago, and I regretted planting it. It was invasive for me and took me years to get rid of every part of it in my garden.

I planted it on the side of our front porch, below the faucet.

Yes, the flowers are beautiful, but if you don't have the space and don't want it to take over, then I'd advise you not to plant it.

Just wondering what zone you are in?
I really like this plant and have had no trouble with it ,except finding it occasionally pops up in the edge of the woods ,and I don't mind .
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

Hi Cinda,

I'm in zone 6. I had it below where the outdoor faucet is and I guess that made it want to keep growing and growing. My sister didn't tell me about it, except that it had white flowers.
