  • Love this plant in my 4 ft. wide concrete planter. Hangs down beautifully and complements the Tangerine and Hot Pink geraniums along with the yellow Super bell saffron all topped by a spiky tropical.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • Travels very well in a container or in a rock garden. I planted some of it in a rectangular container and it took over. I had to repot the end flowers.
    Beautiful colour and really easy to grow. Low to no maintenance.
    I have been told it is an annual at one place and a perennial at another. I will see how it survives the winter in my shrub bed. Adds great colour to my area and love how it creeps over and around the rocks.
    I have also been told that it will not harm the growth of my shrubs as they are only in their third year of growth.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
