You do know how invasive this is?🌞

I've heard that @sunlovin but because this is #notmyplant it's also #notmyproblem LOL. I took this picture at the post office, where this little guy is confined by pavement and is competing against a hosta, a yew bush and some maneating dandelions. They have achieved a state of detente and all bloom cheerfully in their little pocket of soil. My veterinarian has some too, in a raised bed where it has never escaped into the lawn.

@sunlovin I have learned not to believe everything I read also! At the other gardening app where we first met, I read this plant has a horrible smell. I have tested the hypothesis and found that there is no smell at all.

I know not to believe everything I read but i would believe it. I have seen it myself in gardens where it has taken over and ruined the garden despite the owner trying everything to stop it. The smell came when the owner mowed it. I only commented because I didn’t see notmyplant in your hashtags. 🤔

If it were mine @sunlovin it would already be on my restricted list or tagged killitwithfire
