Great In So. Cal.I got my first plant from my neighbor. She used it in her turtle cage but they don't like them. I've had it for about a year now and its MASSIVE! I used it to cover a 75' of chain link fencing. I only have 3 plant and they are pretty much green and flowering year-round. I love them and recommend them to anyone trying to cover a chain link fence.

easy with direct sow..I planted these last year because I was pregnant and I wanted something low maintance for the summer. Showcasing lovely blooms mid summer and into the fall, they were great in both the garden and containers.
I would recommend direct sow for both containers and the garden because the plants that I started in seed cups were very delicate and difficult to transfer. I lost several plants trying to move them from the seed starting system.
