I do like euphorbia for its looks. Got Martinii which is quite well behaved (so far). I have another one which looks good but has designs on invasion (dunno which variety). It should be collecting sponsors for the amount of ground it's covered
I was foolish enough to plant 'gardeners garters' in the garden. A white variegated and a yellow variegated plant. The white one has been well behaved. The yellow one looked fantastic but had covertly sent out 2 - 3 ft runners underground in all directions before I noticed it had mingled with my Crocosmia Lucifer and neighbouring plants! After many hours digging, ruttling and pulling I think I've got rid, although, at the back of mind I just know there is a piece of root down there...waiting and plotting garden domination!! Got some trapped in a pot now. Lesson learned!!
Never had Valerian....! Looks nice in flower but have not been tempted to plant in the garden as I've heard it can be a menace. Anyway, would hate for it to get mugged by my other resident garden thugs, hairy bittercress, willow herb and creeping buttercup!
