Houttuynia corbota

Houttuynia corbota

Very colorful but also very aggresive. Be careful with this plant as it can run over your whole garden

I never noticed the smell but I love all the color. I thought I would put a plastic border edge around them this summer. Do you think that will hold them in if I sink it in the ground a few inches.

I put rocks all around this planting, and will see if that holds it in. Hopefully it doesn't travel underground or that wont work. If that doesn't work will go back
to the idea of putting a plastic border that I can sink in the ground around them.
