I've got one of there but I had to cut it down because it was getting too tall.

They do grow tall, but I find the plant attractive so I will keep it this year. Mine grows in rhubarb patch so no worries. Although, I might cut the flowers before they'll seed everywhere. I have already few seedlings around.

I usually leave it but it gets bigger every year, and I've started to rearrange the area where it's growing. I'll be moving it in the autumn.
I like the flowers too :)

I have not seen it growing wild here, Delonix1.
