Keep it in containers or make a boarder to keep it in check! Gift some to others or use cuttings for plant swap/trade/sales what you clean up just lay on something till its completely dead dead not touching any soil(like metal or plastic) then crush up put in compost bin! @buzzygems its a pretty plant but like any plant you have to care for it and some more than others have to be kept in check. Good luck!
Ok Jenn @jennlamaye will do adding to my list for you now so wont forget. Hope it will finally be safe enough to ship to you next month let me know how your weather will be closer to 1st so can ship if possible. Dont want anything to die.
No but you could put some in the green house mulched. I have seen people bury them under heavy mulch up north in the states and they came back. So it could be possible or you could have one one indoors lol @jeatacake
@blueheart you can grow it outside but you would have to seriously cover it up with mulching/pine straw then after last frost uncover it should return if protected well but best bet would be a container you could put in a greenhouse garage shed etc protected and keep a few pieces in a nice planter indoors good lighting it's very easy to propagate.

That's good to hear. It's actually been very sunny & summer-like here today, up to 25C, after a few weeks of more autumn-like weather. Not really been able to enjoy it though, as been at my ma's old house sorting stuff out before it goes up for sale. xo
