|I thought I was just using this as a chartreuse foliage plant. This is my first year growing it so am delighted to hear about the flowers too. And usable dried too. Thanks.|

|The small pink flowers are really nice. You'll really enjoy them! |
I don't think I mentioned it in the article but you can overwinter them too or take cuttings.

|Thanks if it propagates by cuttings that is good to know.|
Mine are just minute seedlings, but since there were only a few seeds in the package this is good.

|But I should be able to winter them over in the house?|
They are perennials in warmer climes?

|Yes, they are hardy to zone 9 and according to The Annual Garden make great houseplants over the winter It also says the plant is very frost tender.|

|I lost these last year, but have about 8 or 9 good strong seedlings coming along under lights.|
Would they work in hanging baskets as a trailer? Or are they more up right in plant form?
