Is Scilla Invasive?

Q: Should I plant scilla in my garden? I have read about it being invasive. 

A: Scilla, sometimes called squill, grows in several environments, in some more readily than others. In a favorable spot, scilla can grow enthusiastically. There are few places like that in Georgia, but this “enthusiasm” leads to their undeserved invasive reputation. I have scilla in my garden; I wouldn’t worry about it being invasive in yours.
