How I came to detest this smelly plant. You really need to dig this out and get of every bit of root or it will spread and spread.
In a large pot it can look good with pretty flowers it needs a lot of watering, but do put on a patio with no gaps underneath or on feet or it will root through the base mine did and spread so quickly then it took me 5 years to get rid of it.
