OK, so I know that I live in zone 7b & this flower (one that I thought was an annual in my yard three years ago,) should not be popping up every Spring, & flowering continuously until September or October, but THAT is what has happened. Out of the 5 I started with 3 years ago, 4 are still popping up & thriving as if they belong in zone 7.
