We have had this plant growing in a raised planter on our back patio for several years now. Not sure if it is a true perennial, or if it simply reseeds itself. Either way, it blooms every year and it is a great joy to see. Though small, it is mighty. I highly recommend it for smaller gardens since it can be grown in a planter with other plants that bloom throughout the summer.
