I bought this plant at the grocery store three years ago as an annual. It's now at least 3 ft. around and blooms all year long. I don't fertilize it, prune it, or cover it when it freezes. Not only do I do nothing for it, but it has to compete for space with Mexican petunias and it is almost climbing over them. It's just amazing. I just bought two more today!
