Re: Pinellia tripartita - is it a weed?


        We have grown P. cordata, P. pedatisecta, and P. tripartita for 8
years in our garden.  We knew P. ternata was a weed and declined to plant
it.  P. pedatisecta is now being banished from our garden, as it simply
spread too rapidly.  P. tripartita has behaved wonderfully, and while it
reseeded some, it all stays near the mother plant.  P. tripartita
'Atropurpurea' had reseeded very little...unfortunately.  I wish I could
enourage P. cordata to spread, as it is absolutely stunning!  I hope this helps.
