Same thing here with Myosotis, Forget Me Nots.  They are just so darned
pretty, but this year have finally spread about as far as I'm willing to let
them.  I'll pull all but a few plants before they set seed.  they come up
easily.

I too have an oenothera that gets pretty invasive. Probably oenothera
deltoides but there do seem to be some differences. At any rate, I pull it
out as a weed in my cottage garden area (the stuff looks just awful), but
when it popped up in the dry garden I wasn't paying enough attention. Before
I knew it, it had covered about 30 sq ft. So there I was, cussing myself
about how much of it I'd have to yank until I really looked at it. It
doesn't get much water there, so it's not nasty limp yellowy growth but a
nice billowy grey. It's covered with pretty white flowers. It's native. I
had to readjust my thinking on it and now I let it spread, just pulling it
out if I want a clear space. I don't know if eventually I'll regret it;
maybe it will attempt to swallow up the salvias or kniphofia, but for now
it's pretty nice.

Kitty,
I totally agree.  I have several invasives that I have to work on to keep in

bounds.  Now I have Oenothera Siskyou -- MEXICAN EVENING PRIMROSE in full
bloom.  It will die back later but come back next spring even stronger.  I
love the soft blooms and invite it to spread knowing that I will need to
pull it out to keep up with it.
