    I'm the youngest one in the house. I do not believe anyone on the block has small children, although I've seen some grandkids at one house.
    I don’t know if you have pets, but if you do, safety might be a consideration. I think they are really pretty.

    No pets, either.

    Sounds like there is no reason not to try them out. Since some have reported that they really spread, you could head off that issue by just planting them in planters or pots.

    What I've learned is that it pays to be ruthless when getting rid of plants that you change your mind on. No sentiment/no mercy.

    Given our soil I plant anything less than a tree in a pot anyway.
