Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral fizzbowen On Jan 3, 2010, fizzbowen from Ventura, CA wrote:

This plant blooms nearly year-round in Ventura, California. Our flowers look like purple baby's breath, with occasional white blossoms interspersed among the violet majority. It is very hardy, grows even in shady areas (not as well as in the sun, however), attracts bees, and tends to seed "volunteers" in areas of the yard that receive ample moisture. We frequently have to pull these new plants as weeds when they sprout among rocks or gravel (which they actually seem to prefer to bare dirt). They pile up dead leaves low on the stalks, and they look better if these are trimmed or pulled out from time to time. Be careful if you pull; it doesn't seem to hurt the plants, but the roots are shallow, so it is easy to uproot them. They can be grown in a pot, but do best in a well-drained bed.

This plant has doubled in size since fall and bloomed all winter here in zone 9! Butterflys love it! Still blooming now and we are headed into spring.

terrific plant. Non stop bloom from spring through fall. Survives with minimal water and takes the hot sun here in the valley. Great butterfly attractor.
