This is a fabulous containter plant! Not only does it fill in your arrangement, but it will also do a bit of trailing. It seems to do the best in part shade, avoiding the hot afternoon sun. Beautiful mixed with impatiens.

Sweet little low-growing plant which looks like a cross between a johnny-jump-up and a snapdragon. The fuzzy texture is what originaaly caught my eye! Lovely! My kids love looking inside the blossom for the "wishbone".
