My Experience: 

I transplanted some plants from North Carolina and grow them in the Around The Pool garden. They multiply very quickly and I have to dig them every year to prevent them from taking over. In September 2014 I dug them all from the Around The Pool garden and replanted some in the In Between Garden.
