    Hi Joyce, they do take over don't they. but I love them so much I've grown 5 or 6 new colours from seed this season, 

  • They must be well-advanced, Nut, if you know what colour they are already. image

    Yes please for seed!! I love them, but lost lost due to works on my garden. I was going to wait until they magically rebuild but if there's some seed going, i'll grab it!

  • I now have a growing colony in my gravel drive. I love the way they soften the harshness of the drive.

  • My friend has several different colours in her garden so is going to give me the seeds when they are ready

    I sowed seeds from my daughters plants, so far i have mauve, blue and a maroon one, not sure they come true from seeds.
