Gladiolus splendens weediness

Our propagator has grown some Gladiolus splendens from wild-collected 
seed, but we are concerned about its weed potential due to its growth 
habit of sending stolons out from the main corm (and its ready 
germination).I wonder if any others in our coastal Bay Area California 
climate have observed any spreading of this plant. The issue of 
invasiveness always concerns us when planting out new material.
