This is a near-evergreen perennial that sprouts as soon as the snow's gone and just keep going until the snow covers it again. Can live on virtually nothing, spreads like wildfire but is very easy to remove from where it's unwanted.

I like this opinion

Rating for this plant:
Self-sows readily, but as Droopy says, it is easy to pull out. Has a very delicate look in the garden.

I like this opinion
