      A question for those of you who grow Jewelweed - how big of a nuisance does it become for you? Does it reseed itself rampantly? I planted Impatiens gladulifera (Policeman's Helmet) in my yard, then spent about 3 years trying to irradicate it! It is listed as a noxious weed where I live & I now know why. It grew up to 6' tall and came up everywhere.

      So, how aggressive is Jewelweed? I don't s'pose my hummers need the additional source of nectar, but it sounds a bit tempting.
