I bought a six pack of these a few years back and I'm still getting volunteers, not many mind you, but that's OK.
This year I bought a large packet of seeds and plan on spreading them around. They are really pretty, with unusual colors, and a strange upright habit. A very small plant, it makes a good candidate for mixing and using as a filler. I'm hoping to get them going in between my iris. In fact there are lots of spots this little gem is welcome, I don't think I could ever have too many.
