How do you grow yours? I sowed some this year and luckily I left them in a container because the flowers are tiny! The bees go crazy for these tinsy flowers. You can hear them buzzzzzzz 😂

Last year I grew them from seed in trays and put them in the ground @ublaszko This year they just popped up unexpectedly 😁

You're right there @flowerseed hence choosing not to grow them again 😂 but actually the leaves are a beautiful colour and could probably work if you could see down there 😂

I agree, the leaves are lovely but they need to be looked at up close. They work well in a raised container 👍 I put a container of these on my garden bench as I don't have any raised planters yet and they look great. Except they do flop over 😑 @flowerseed

Maybe they'd work in a hanging basket @ublaszko
