Which plants should I avoid planting?

Aegopodium podagraria "Variegatum."

Unbelievable, variegated Ground Elder is very popular with garden designers who love it's fresh looking green and white variegation.
It is really only slightly less vigorous than that the green leaved weed.
I have found it to be slow to establish, but suddenly after a few years it spreads all over. It's thin white roots penetrate the rootballs of neighbouring plants. A complete nightmare!
