The whole of one of my borders was covered in it - four and a half years on I am still trying to eradicate it - I agree with Rachel when you dig it out it quite frankly honks @rachelbrooks

I had the same trouble trying to get rid of it, every tiny bit of root left in the soil grows into another plant. I got rid of it because I couldn’t bear the smell. It is a shame because it does look lovely.

Yes it’s the roots. Not so much the leaves. And it really seems to linger!! Good job it’s so pretty! @auricula @sadieberg

Thanks Kerry @kez001uk. They have it in the local park and I admired it everyday. So I couldn’t really help it but buy some 😊
