Ficaria 'Brazen Hussy' has not been excessively invasive here and today 
looks quite interesting surrounding a "black" single Helleborus x 
hybridus. However, this -- and even the double ficarias, which one would 
hope might be sterile -- are quite capable of self-sowing back to the 
typical form. A bright yellow double here as done that, but on the other 
hand, I don't see typical seedlings near 'Double Mud'.

Within reason I'm an enthusiast of Ranunculaceae (common buttercups 
would be without reason), especially the smaller Anemone species. The 
difficulty of growing many of them from seed, which in some species has 
brief viability, is an obstacle. Yet it's always worth a try, and last 
year I got Trollius hondoensis from the NARGS leftovers. It hasn't 
reappeared in the pot yet, though.
