John, GET RID ASAP
I have this in a pot, in the pool (again a pot) and there it stays. Even in a pot I check the roots aren't getting into the soil
even if you havent noticed yet, it will take over your garden. Seen it happen and seeing it happen now. The roots go deep; like bindweed every piece of root will grow. I have known this plant for 20 years plus.. it is a lovely foliage plant esp when grown in the sun but, like the rose, its beauty belies its nasty side. It grows well here in dry soil;grows well in water.
Perhaps someone will say its because it is mild here that this thug is so aggressive.
It should only be in a container....never in the ground. '
