Love this plant in my 4 ft. wide concrete planter. Hangs down beautifully and complements the Tangerine and Hot Pink geraniums along with the yellow Super bell saffron all topped by a spiky tropical.

An old favourite of mine. I remember as a child my mother used to grow it on her rockery.DouglasFlevolandNetherlands6 years ago
Travels very well in a container or in a rock garden. I planted some of it in a rectangular container and it took over. I had to repot the end flowers. Beautiful colour and really easy to grow. Low to no maintenance. I have been told it is an annual at one place and a perennial at another. I will see how it survives the winter in my shrub bed. Adds great colour to my area and love how it creeps over and around the rocks. I have also been told that it will not harm the growth of my shrubs as they are only in their third year of growth.Donna MCanada6 years ago
