Got chokes? (Jerusalem artichoke, Helianthus tuberosus)
How does this guy behave in our climate? I absolutely love it, but have never had one myself, and I've read that it's a bit vigorous, to say the least!
I'd love to stick one or two in smallish beds at the front (west) of my house, maybe interplanted with some grasses and a few other things. Each bed is probably 10' by 6', afternoon sun, adjacent to brick facing.
What do you think? Would I regret planting this monster in a few years? :)
