First year for me with these. Very pretty foliage with white flowers and then interesting little balloon seed pods. I'll plant these again. Good for front of the border or just here and there. Tidy plants didn't get leggy at all, even in a slightly shaded position.

I truly love the dainty detail on these plants, the flowers burst with such an awe of color. They self seed if left to drop, or you can start early summer and have blooms.
