Gardeners' Notes:

The tag on my plant said cultivar "Sea Star", a variety with pink flowers. Mine has white flowers, so unless the flowers turn pink, I have put my pic in the generic file for this plant. Mine is potted, and does well by the window sill, southern exposure.

Very pretty flowers in spring. For me it is definitely a perennial and not an annual. I am zone 5a.
