You can't get much easier to grow than this. I started this plant from seed, stuffed it into a 6 inch pot and proceeded to forget about it for 2 years. It survived outdoors in that same 6 inch pot for two of our 5b winters. I finally noticed that it was still living, and trying to take over a spot where I really didn't want it, so I moved it into a much larger container. This is its second year in that container and it's now about 4 ft tall and showing a lot of blooms.
