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

    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

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

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