This is a nuisance plant!?

Apparently it is. When a local friend posted a picture of it in her garden others commented about it's invasive behavior. I think it's a very nice plant even though it's considered invasive in parts of USA and it is poisonous as well @emch

Numerous cultivators are available for gardens! I think any plant can get out of control if you allow it! I say, if it makes you happy - do it! I love this plant! 💚🤍💚

I've always liked these. Wonder if they're a nuisance here? I think they're on my wishlist. If not, they are now

I have never even seen one in person, let aline seeing them take over anywhere. It's a pity

I did a little more research and found these to be invasive in mostly coastal regions here. One article suggested that toothwort would be a good alternative. Yuck. After talking it over with Bob, we're going to take this out because of it's high toxicity. So sad but the dogs, cats and chickens live mostly in this area of the yard #plot-twist #uhoh #damnitspretty #canthavetoxic #findanativeinstead #toxic #highlytoxic @emch @lesliecole49 @KariSamuel @gjones

I took mine out because of that my Dottie was attracted to the odor it puts out and so I had to dig mine up

If your dogs haven't gotten into it by now I would think they'd leave it alone. But chickens? They eat anything green as far as I know, yeah, I'd probably take it out too. 😔
