Crocosmia/m0ntbretia - appropriate contexts?
« on: September 05, 2016, 03:30:51 PM »
Howdy,

I've got some Montbretia 'Lucifer' seedlings that I'd like to find a spot for, but I notice that the UK law on invasive species lists Montbretia as unlawful to plant "in the wild" because it's an invasive non-native:

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1981/69/schedule/9

Does anyone know what "in the wild" means in this context? Would it be appropriate in an (urban) "island" of soil (e.g. traffic island) so that the rhizomes can't spread anywhere?

I understand the "unofficial" nature of guerrilla gardening, but I don't want to be planting anything that could become invasive.
