Reseeds and spreads even up here in New England. The honey bees love it, they were all over them. They do spread, but I love the effect in my front bed because the soil dries out so quickly and these pretties really do help.

This plant will grow just about anywhere there is a place to get a foothold. The seeds are very tiny and can be carried by the wind or hitch a ride on people and animals. It is very beautiful in mass plantings, though, and has been very effective in preventing erosion between the bricks in my walkway. However, I wouldn't suggest using it in any kind of flowerbed or hanging plant; you'll end up with it growing everywhere.
