Very easy to grow they are an ideal addition to rockeries, hanging baskets or other containers where their hardiness and dry-tolerance ensures a good display. Louis, plants bloom profusely in cool spring weather until June when they decline rapidly and die with the onset of consistently high heat and humidity.
