I think that's why I didn't bother in this garden after having had it in my last one !

It is a wee bit thuggish!

We had it, took it out, but it is still coming up, we also have a very pretty variegated one, struggling to get through!!

Not overly keen on variegated plants TBH. I have two clumps of this and will probably take one out.

Mine puts out loads of greenery, but rarely flowers :o( It's in full sun for most of the day - looks happy enough at the moment... What do you think I'm doing wrong?

No idea. T'other half has the same problem - all that I do differently to her is prune the foliage back quite hard in spring/summer if it's in the way.

Maybe if I try to dig it up to get rid of it, it might reward me with a flower or two in the regrowth! :D
