Totally agree with you Jared.Really? Man they go bonkers here. They self seed and will create a carpet of freshly germinated heart shaped leaves. Then its a drag race to the sky! They are super aggressive. Must be a Michigan thing. We do have a really nice micro climate with the Great Lakes protecting us. My neighbor has them self seed and germinate along her fence every year without fail. They look really pretty in bloom and from afar they are hard to hate.
Till they are climbing on things choking out your clematis, or going up a tree, or trampoline, or tomato cages and just making a nuisance of themselves. They are as tough and dandelions here and just as prolific.
