Good luck, Cathy...those long, white roots can be persistent!  I have
it in one bed and it's now working under the flagstone to come up in
the path - has taken it about 20 years to really get rambunctious as
this is a rather dryish bed, but in wet soil, Katy bar the door! 
It's basically a bog or marginal plant.  I yank it out and whack it
off, but leave it as it is attractive; but would not recommend it to
the unwary:-)
