Plant went through its first year in my garden last year, so I have no idea as to hardiness or reseeding or spread yet. But I will comment that it's a good plant to try pushing for shade tolerance. Mine grew in full dappled shade with no direct sunlight and bloomed just fine. It was, however, a bit leggier than it probably should have been and required staking, but one semi-circular shaped wire stake did the trick.
