Sanbaz, you're absolutely right. I'm not even afraid to admit it would be quite invasive if I don't 'teach' it to behave. This plant quickly spreads by 'whiskers' so I regularly cut them back to about 10'' so they don't touch the ground. As a result, naturaly spreading plant becomes more like a mound that sends more new shoots (because of cutting back) and gets denser and bushier.))
