Then there are the mints (Mentha sp.), horseradish, Artemisia ludoviciana, bouncing bet (Saponaria sp.) and comfrey. They should be planted in containers which are dug into the ground to avoid them taking over the garden, and to make it possible to get rid of them if you decide to. Among the wild seeders are motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca), catmints (eg. Nepeta cataria, Nepeta grandiflora), wild oregano (Origanum vulgare), valerian (Valeriana officinalis), mallows (eg. Malva moschata, Malva rosea), and hyssop.

A prolific annual is California poppy, Eschscholtzia californica.
