Although this plant has pretty flowers, I have now potted it and placed the pot in an area surrounded by Ivy to contain it, because it is a vigorous spreader and I have small babies of it growing all over the place where I don't want it to grow. No matter how you much you remove the babies, more pop up. A very invasive plant, Have to wait till next spring to see where else it spread to and rip it out. Also the flowers hang in a downward position and unless your up close, you can't see the colors of the flower itself.

Strong, elegant no care plant, except for deadheading for rebloom. Holds its own at the back of a bed. I have been surprised at its strength and beauty.
