Planted this in September on the north side, and even though we've had freezing temps, it's still lovely and flowering! So far I love it.

This plant grows nicely in a sheltered, shady, nutrient-poor patch of my back yard that is bone-dry in summer and constantly damp in winter. It is very well-behaved under these conditions. It was here when we moved in 15 years ago, and has shown no inclination to expand its territory.

After several years I have removed this plant from the garden. It spread much too rapidly by long creeping shoots that rooted along the way; it didn't make or stay in a clump. It also crept over and smothered out its neighbors. I like plants intermingling but this deadnettle began to behave like an invasive weed. To my dismay, when I tried to dig it out it had created a dense mat of roots that required a shovel to remove and took a good deal of soil with it. The mat of roots also seemed to be a good environment for pillbugs.

I acquired this plant from a single cutting that was given to me. Given its vigor and matting quality I think it would be a nice massed groundcover for a slope. The flowers and leaves are pretty.

I've had great luck with this plant in shady locations. It spreads rapidly and blooms easily. Less luck with these in pots. After even a mild winter, they were gangly and needed quite a bit of cleaning up. A quick transplant to a shady spot in the garden brought them right back, however.

Impressive plant. Looks fantastic in containers. Excellent cold hardiness. I will post an image of one in a coco fiber hanging basket with icicles hanging all over it and a mound of snow on top. That plant didn't die! I tidied it up and it looks great this spring. I use this plant in hanging baskets only, so I have no experience with invasiveness. I believe it could be, though, after seeing how hardy...

Yeah, too many examples and pissy things go on that were bad enough at the time, so am not in the mood to rehash this Monday morning!
Yeah plants are always better the second time around. I'm surprised you didn't get more from the chamomile. It's an annual that self seeds like crazy. I only brought one with me to the new place from the apartment, because I know this time next year, there'll be a colony of cham seedlings around this one parent. I kept some of mostly everything in pots so they were easy to move. But some things I had to unearth and repot, and a few really didn't like it, like motherwort, because they were in full bloom when I did it

DALY: Use care when planting around septic drainfields  —
Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
