can anyone clarify for which animals this plant is toxic? I’ve researched the web and only find reports of toxicity in sheep and horses, it doesn’t seem to be contraindicated for cats and dogs. Also, does any one have this in their garden and it’s become invasive? I’ve seen some reports of rapidly spreading rhizomes which are impossible to get rid of.

I have had ordinary phalaris (Gardeners garters) 'around' for ages and it will spread rapidly under good conditions but not too difficult to remove, spread moderately in less than suitable places and die in an unsuitable place.
