A vigorous annual species with glossy green leaves. It doesn't flower until october, and is completely destroyed by frost, so every year is a race to produce seed. Spreading slowly around the garden (and being controlled where needed).

I have it producing seedlings at the back of the conservatory (where it is hemmed in with concrete). I think it would be quite a hazard in the open garden.

The cold winter destroys the adult plants completely, but the seed manages to survive, and pops up wherever it gets a chance.

Usually the plants are destroyed by frost but this year it was heavy snowfall in November that ended the season.
