Since this plant propagates by seed is it going to be invasive? I shudder to think of another invasive species after fighting Four O'clocks and Floss Flower for years.

Planted half a dozen of these right before the drought hit this summer. Didn't water them daily at first and they suffered, but during the worst part of the drought gave them enough to make it, and this fall they were putting out blooms through November. Two plants that I was sure had died reappeared when we upped the watering frequency and had reestablished themselves well before winter set in.

These flowers dangle so sweetly in the most delightful shade of deep lavender. Absolutely wonderful. Flowering starts in early summer and lasts for a couple of months with deadheading spent flowers. Mound-like habit. Works in containers, too.
