After my lengthy battle to eradicate the Aegopodium podagraria 'variegata' (Bishops Weed) from the garden, I get a little worked up when I see it for sale at a nursery. Especially when there is no indication whatsoever that the plant is an invasive pest.
But I thought this label actually summed it up quite well, and yes, even I admit the plant is sometimes useful. On the north side of my parents house, where it is corralled, can't escape and it doesn't turn crispy brown in the summer, for example.
Oh and yes, I did win the battle, eventually.
