Thanks Toto!...I think it is just beautiful...and I planted it near some aegopodium ...which is even worse! I fancy they keep each other in check!!

I think the reason why it poses very little threat in my garden is the climate! It has a lot longer period of cold dormancy from which to recover...ergo..it's slower off the mark..and the aegopodium gets the upper hand... lol... That's where I come in...I rip the aego out by handfuls it adds to my compost heap. then with the aego gone, the vinca gets more light that in likes and slows down...! A strange kind of companion planting.
