Problem Plant

I purchased a tiny pot of this plant at a nursery that specialized in herbs - about 8 years ago. Nurseries should not be allowed to sell this plant. It can be invasive. It hasn't been too bad for me, but has started edging out the black-eyed Susans, so it has to go. It won't be easy to eradicate. It spreads by seed and rhizome. What is it? Chameleon plant (Houttuynia cordata). Another complaint to add to the list: it has an odd smell. I did find the perfect transplant location for it, though :)
