CULT: Creeping Jenny as....

I've seen it used in a bog garden with pseudacorus, LAs, acorus, other rushes,
mallows, carnivorous things and such, and it was just fine, but then LAs like
some covering over the rhizomes so they don't sunscald. I generally don't
think it is a good idea to let much of anything invade the crowns of irises
and I generally consider borderline invasive plants to be iffy companions.
Which doesn't mean you can't use them in the general vacinity of something
else, only that things planted together should be able to get along. 

Someone else will need to address the question of your JI and how they would
like creeping jenny. Might get some interesting color effects going with the
gold of the aurea form and the gold of the iris signals. Would look real nasty
with pink JI, though.  

Thinking out loud again....
