@smart1blonde I do! I just dig them out of the border, pot them up and over winter in a cold greenhouse, then replant in the spring.. give it a go you’ve got nothing to lose 😊

@smart1blonde they divide well too so do that when you repot and they spread.. you may never need to buy any more 😊 lovely bit of sunshine 🌞

I bought these as bedding last year and overwintered them in the greenhouse @flof1952 so good value too if you do try them, morning @pelly yes they do close up for the night don't they.. aren't they @kvetinka ... thought you might like them @scaryskates they are bright bold and breezy and remind me of someone... 🤔😏

Is that an annual @flowergirl63 the leaves are a soft silver colour..

They're used as annual bedding here, but I think they're perennial in hot countries. They're very tender though ☺

Help me identify this plant please - I picked this up at the village shop but they had no labels, but loved the colour for under planting the sunflowers...
