Krigia biflora

I recently ran across it and wondered if anyone had any experience growing it. Does it spread quickly? Am I an idiot for even thinking about using it in my yard? We already have hairy hawkweed (it spreads very quickly by runners) so I don't want something too invasive.

Never heard of anyone cultivating it, though it is a neat plant. Whenever I'd seen it in the wild there were just a few plants or isolated patches, so I doubt it would behave like a weed.

Thanks. I noticed there were only a few plants so I am hoping it isn't terribly invasive. I will try it in the spring and see what happens.
