Good question, probably may become invasive, and next hard to remove but will attract many of beetles.

Get rid of as many as you can. They are invasive and almost impossible to remove when they are 3 or 4 years old as they restart from every tiny bit of root. They also produce thousands of long lasting seeds so you already have enough seeds for the next 15 years, if you want some.

In my garden, I keep only a few plants (mashed leaves are great to calm burn from nettle) but I cut the seeds before they mature. I'm 15 years there and I still see dozens of seedlings every spring.

No one eat their seeds in winter so its usefulness for wildlife is much more limited than Daucus carota or Angelica sylvestris.

thank you Biologists, you are too kind.

I chose to dig and seed the small stripe by the wall too. Too many of the rumex and aegopodium were there...

... interesting is that the green area seems to get more light than all other parts.

If you're confident that the soil is not too polluted, young Aegopodium leaves prepared like spinach are delicious. They were a common vegetable a few hundreds years ago but were kicked out of gardens because really too invasive.

I am not sure concerning pollution. The street is well used.

May I suggest this treatment to compensate the CP-less
capture…

Very good light and rendition… but where is the focus point, Armando?
