Why is weed a four letter word?... These plants are beautiful, strong survivors and if you don't like them where they've planted themselves you just rip them out and put them in compost. simple. That combo you mentioned with the Jacarandas sounds just delightful. Viva wiganda!

I have to update...its made some progress,stretched out more.
Lori,everything is a weed someplace- ha. I watched YouTube of " Lets take a walk in the forest and bring back Orchids for the house- its what everybody does here".

This plant is a bit more weedy as its called "Ruderal" I think it sprouts up in South America best in empty lots or along roads where there was some construction.
Sort of like Thistles..weeds,yet,people buy Thistles for gardens all the time. I've seen some even made into cultivars.
