Planted this in my front flowerbed once in 2007 , And it has reseeded every year always popping up in new places . I hope this year it takes over the flowerbed ! I do not Know if the plant is supposed to be sterile or not come true from seed but in my case it does , only a few solid white flowers every now and then .This year I see little petunias popping up around my sago palm and my agaves . They are to beautiful to be a weed so I just let them colonize wherever they please . Only Blue frost has reseeded for me none of the wave or limoncello do. I have to buy the limoncello every year , They look beautiful next to the blooms of the blue frost . The dark of the blue frost with the yellow of the limoncello really pop . I love how my pure white callas grow straight up through the petunias and complete the show .
