I enjoy this one along with the purple one, blooms all summer, Water thoroughly when just the soil surface is dry to the touch. Not hardy: grow as an annual. the fan-shaped white blooms with purple edges are stricking. trailing makes it ideal for hanging baskets. Very heat tolerant. Perform well all summer.
