Silene serpentinicola

Can anyone advise please if this species, when grown under 'garden' conditions, becomes somewhat 'weedy' and invasive?

[Moderator note:
Longma, I edited the species name from Silene serpenticola to Silene serpentinicola... if that's incorrect, please let me know. - Lori]

I have absolutely no first hand knowledge of this species... but I have a sneaking suspicion most people would be lucky to keep it alive.   ;D ;D

... but having said that, Silene serpentinicola is rhizomatous, apparently, so a very good question:

I did a search on the main SRGC forum site to see if anyone had mentioned growing it, and found nothing.

Indeed S. serpentinicola it is Lori. :). Thanks for correcting my mistake,  :-[
