Well....the advice is there. It's varied.
My experience is that they ....eventually.....create problems. A neighbour removed his many years back and has been PLAGUED ever since. I notice the latest has sprung up in his front hedge now with suckers venturing onto the pavement. I was lucky......a knowledgeable friend advised me many years ago not to plant a "seedling" I was given.
One lesson I have learned is not to turn a blind eye and think these thugs wont affect you....ask those with bamboo, japanese anemone, euphorbia griffithi, artemisia, etc etc
