pirl said:It could work. Try it and let us know. While they are beautiful, it's the brief bloom time (and I have what is considered early, midseason and late - all within 10 days!) and the spreading of the roots that make me love them less.
I have one area where I do let them roam and spread happily - more sun than shade.
