I grew these last year and was more than pleased with them. They bloomed continuously through the season and were very easy to care for. I would recommend them for all levels of gardeners. The flowers were a beautiful rich purple and never showed signs of wilting or illness throughout the growing season. Mine were both planted in containers, in full shade on/near my south facing patio. Even after a short vacation with no care they didn't look worse for wear, unlike some of our containers. Everyone who visited over the course of the summer/fall commented on these pretties, especially those who visited regularly. I would highly recommend the browallia to everyone looking for a hardy annual to brighten up shady spots and it will be one of our "What's New, What's Hot" product recommendations for 2016 in Alberta Gardener, Ontario Gardener and Manitoba Gardener magazines!
