Regarding invasives - do you keep some & put in the effort?

14 years ago

As a child, we had a Rose of Sharon in our backyard. I called it "my tree" and played under it, on it, etc. I have fond memories of it and found a volunteer in one of my untended beds, along with some forsythia.

Although I wouldn't do it for just anything, I absolutely would put in the effort to keep this one around, and be diligent about keeping it in line. But I do think about the next people who own my home (it's a first home, not a forever home) and think... This could be a problem for them too.

It hasn't flowered yet, I could pull it out. I was just wondering if any of you knowingly keep plants that are potentially invasive, and put in the work to keep them well behaved.
