One of my favorites. Monterey Bay Nursery says, to 12" tall by 3' wide, as you can see if staked, a taller plant is possible. Looks beautiful in hanging baskets. Blooms all the time. Most nurseries here have blooms all winter if sheltered. Good trailing plant,looks delicate, and tropical, but is really semi-hardy(25f).
