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!

Warning ⚠️. Dogs and cats are allergic to sap. Posters on vet walls shows many plants but this is one of them. I know through experience so I’ve got pots up off ground. @buzzygems

One of the many is inside now and this one will probably become an inside plant. Will mulch heavy the ones outside like last year.

comment

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

Survives where I am at. But you can have these indoors as house plants as well. @blueheart

@cyndi thank you. I'm in zone 6.

comment
cyndi

@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.
