No problem of them taking over here Smitty. I grow them at the end of our fence as I said. In Spring I just mow over the ones that I don't want, or give away to friends :DI wouldn't have them in my formal gardens though :shock: :D

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...wonder if they'd look ok naturalizing with a friendly hand helping them to not overtake???..think they would work mingled thru this bed?? it's getting an overhaul this summer as it's gone from shade to sun. was thinking kinda wild looking with poppies and other self seeders popping up amongst the perennials and shrubs??

They would look nice Smitty, however, you may not wish to have them amongst other plants. They do very well at self-seeding. They are easily pulled out though. Remember they can grow anywhere form 4' - 6' tall and wide. :shock: :D

Good morning! I'm been digging and moving my plants to find a place that I feel it grow and I add annual plant called Himalaya Impatient ( just know from Kelly). I had that plants 3 years ago , I planted by the deck is grow so beautiful then after a year I added with perennial and last year I moved my annual plants because is every where. Then I planted by the alley and I planted some beside the fence with perennial but with taller plants. So if you feel is alright go for it, is okey. .......every one is different.
