  Crocosmia/Monbretia are also rampantly stoloniferous - so it may have a subterranean invasion as well...


From: pbs <> on behalf of Jane McGary <>

The Crocosmia mentioned here by Robin Hansen, popularly known as
Montbretia, is common on the Oregon coast and many people think it's a
native; it is a pest there, and a clump in my neighbor's yard has seeded
through the fence. (The same neighbor planted a "wildflower mix" that
caused me a lot more trouble, mostly with a Geum.) I always try to
dissuade people from planting flower seed mixtures, which generally
contain a few ferocious self-sowers.
