I can't remember what I planted. I didn't expect this but I really like it. Does anyone know what it is. I hope it's a perennial but it it's not, I want to know what kind of seeds to get next year. I know someone out there will know what it is!

It self sows so you may not have to do anything to have it again next year.I planted them once and have had them every year sense without doing a thing! :) Joy

I have this "annual" it is now 4 years old and has become a mound almost a yard across. It blooms for about 2 months and then is a lovely green the rest of the year. So far it has survived flooding, heavy frosts and light snow without being covered because who covers annuals! I started it from seed but have yet to see it self seed new plants.
