It just cannot 'mind its own business' which is why it needs careful consideration before planting it! I have variegated ground elder (on purpose!) under my red sycamore tree, where it lights up the area beautifully - but I know it must never escape those harsh conditions. It tries to hitch a lift in pots now and again, but so far I have caught it out. All flowers are removed as soon as they show their heads, and so far, so good. You will need to be equally on the ball with your solaria - it does make a wonderful looking 'Japanese' look garden e.g., but don't let it escape into good soil or light - you cannot keep up with it. Meantime, enjoy.
