Is it in dappled shade and damp? that's what it prefers.

I think this one should be sold with a health warning. I planted it in light soil in shade and it ran the whole length of the border in just three years. Now it's in a bottomless pot in heavy clay and has only just thought about making a move

I planted three in a space under a Pittosporum tree where there isn't anything since I cleared away all the Ivy from the ground. I hope they DO spread - at least for a while!

E. robbiae is notorious for being invasive - you have been warned!!!

hello everyone i have got this plant in my garden it is growing in the shade in damp conditions and as andrewr said it should come with a health warning it is extremely invasive but easy to dig out, watch out for the white sap wich commes out off the stems when broken it can be irritating to some peoples skin so wear gloves.
