@gjones just this last month I am finding more "volunteers" in random pots than any other time of year 🤔 I wonder if they just do better in the heat

We found quite a variety of volunteers this year. I have one in a pot that We still arenโ€™t sure what it is. Maybe an aster or a daisy. Iโ€™ll most a photo once it opens completely.

They definitely do not like cold! @gjones. Even here it barely got below 40 last winter. These still died back, all the seeds in the hanging basket sprouted in the spring when we warmed up 😉
