    Hiya rosemummy. I would regard them as half hardy annuals, so you need to save seed and start again each year.

    Beth Chatto has a white one she got from Dixter that acts as a perennial, but  it is currently out of stock.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    I have seeds for matthiola perennis, which is described as a short life perennial
