The evening primrose is invasive. You might want to plant into a container in the ground to contain its spread. The root system is relatively shallow.

It would be more accurate to indicate where you have found this plant to be invasive. I live in the Pacific NW and do not have any problem with it either reseeding itself or spreading aggressively. It just slowly increases the same as any other perennial. I don't doubt that it is invasive in other regions, just suggesting that knowing where it is problematic would be helpful.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
