Easy to grow from seed, Sandra! They are really annuals or sometimes biennials, I believe.

Nice colour combination between leaves and flowers

They do have a mind of their own, Pp. I'd like to scatter some seeds in my gravel garden, but I bet the plants appear elsewhere! lol.

That is so early, mine is still a baby, usually overwinter but not this time.

Would love some to seed in my garden! They look so lovely - are they sun lovers?

Yes, Jo - definitely.

Oh Barbara, your such a good friend.

We've just found 2 of these which have just seen fit to germinate at my partners house. They're very sheltered so hopefully they'll make it through the winter.

I'm sure they will - don't forget to gather the seeds! They're so big, it's easy...My seedlings are amazing - one is in flower already! If the weather is kind, I might even get seeds off that this year, :-))
