This went crazy in a hanging basket I had out this summer - I plan to bring it in this winter and hang it next to a sunny window, hopefully it will still be going by next spring!

Blooms all season. Filler for containers, baskets, window boxes. Fertilize every 2-3 weeks, keep soil moist at all times. a lovely addition to the garden. Mine has been in the ground now for almost 2 years, despite my neglect, it continues to bloom in full sun.
