Just how invasive IS variegated polk weed?
Phytolacca americana 'Silberstein' or 'Variegata' to be exact. I know this is a *weed in certain parts of the country, but would it be here in z5? What makes it invasive? Does it spread by underground runners? I do know it seeds a lot- are those hard to pull? How hard is it to keep this plant in check?
I TOLD myself from here on out I would NOT buy any more plants that I know to be invasive/weedy. But I have the most perfect spot for this plant and love the looks of it, Lol.
Would love to hear your experiences and opinions of this plant. Thanks ;-)
