Self-sowing with year-round blooms
on 02/10/14 by Suzanne Harmon in CA

We put some of this in a Grow Biointensive bed as a border - they are self-sowing like crazy, and weve had blooms 12-months of the year. Bursting with flowers right now in early February. An effortless, and pretty addition to the garden.
