Thugs in the garden? Never put artimesia limelight in the garden. You will never get rid of it. Euphorbia griffithi, houttynia chameleon are the same as are many grasses. I have learned to grow the better behaved varieties of these plants

houttynia chameleon, that creeping miniature violet, a nettle like thing with a horrible smell, macleaya cordata, rhus typhina sending up suckers everywhere - I could go on!

I'd certainly add the common Celandine and Butterbur......neither of which I planted but someone did

And of course a valerian - not the common officianalis - which grows about 3 feet and seeds everywhere! And the perennial sweet pea coming up all over the shop - took the weedkiller to that this year..............

I  left houttynia chameleon at the last house I owned thank god, but I inherited Jap Anenome - I hate it.  Cant get rid of the stuff and next door has got it now so even though I try my best to dig it all up the damn thing returns from next door.  The other thing is comfrey, hate that too, I havent planted it but baby plants keep turning up everwhere like a bad penny.
