Houttuynia 'Chameleon' is fine in the pond, but too invasive for the garden. Gets pretty white flowers.

DOn't I know it I had this on my rockery and it grew everywhere and I had a very hard time of it getting rid of the plant. It is a lovely plant but the sap smells awful and I always wondered if it would irritate the skin so I always washed my hands well after handling it just in case.

Yes it is colourful but can be a wanderer like you said
