Actually I bought three plants of this 12 years ago, it lives quietly and safely under my red sycamore where absolutely nothing had grown ever. As long as I never let it flower, watch out that it does not leak out into any nearby pot, it has been quiet and well behaved. It lights up a dark corner which would otherwise be always dark and dull. It disappears each winter, I grow spring tiny bulbs there with epidmediums along the open side, it never tries to overgrow those,. As with any ground cover plant, ensure that it has to struggle to survive and it will behave - it has no choice. I don't pretend this is a suitable plant for very many places, it could esasily get away in better growing circumstances, but it is not getting better circumstances so it stays put.
