May 18: It was about the first plant to appear in its bed. Now I can see that it has spread too much into the lily of the valley and probably back into the mint.

December 31: I got this originally with the golden glow in 2007. It was growing in with those plants, and I have been fighting it back ever since. However, I have put some on the east side of the house between the mint and the lily of the valley, and I think I can control its spread as I do those other plants by using Round Up where the beds meet.
