pratia pedunculata

hi everyone, hope someone can help me, I have just planted pratia blue star in a stone trough, then I read that it is quite invasive. does it self seed, the planter is next to the lawn and the last thing I want is for it to seed into the lawn,( it looks lovely in the planter) thanks



i have grown it for a couple of years now. no evidence of it seeding any where :(

Maybe not ,but it was rampant in our lawn in our last house. Whether that was from seed or bits falling into the grass and rooting, I would not like to say.

It spreads by its spreading roots so should be OK in a trough. Ours is in a dryish, shaded area of the garden and has not spread too much in 10/15 years.

thanks to everyone, it can stay in the trough and I will enjoy the lovely blue flowers
