June - October
Popular annual for use as an edging plant where lots of flowers are needed. Good for growing between walkway stones and as a filler between taller plants.
Full sun to partial shade in well-drained soils. During the summer, cut back plants to keep it flowering. Leave plants in the garden over the winter. In spring, remove plants to expose lots of self-sown seedlings.
