The Dwarf Bedding Mix self-sows here in zone 6. It grows much taller and wider than one would think for a so-called 'dwarf' variety. The various shades of purple, lavender, bright pink, and an occasional bi-color are pretty. It will spread quite readily and is very rugged in my experience. Seeds can be saved and planted in any sunny location where you need something easy to care for.
