What are the pros? Flowered like crazy

What are the cons? Not enough victims to try them


I will be growing this plant from here on out. I live in zone 5 so this is an annual for me. I seeded them using the Winter Sown method they were slow to start but germinated once the weather got a bit warmer and I wound up composting some seedlings. The plant filled in quickly at the feet of taller perennials along the edge of my driveway. I had to move two as I had some major crowding going on...they pouted for a bit but had a quick recovery and spread even more. Taking on a viney ground cover look, softening the edge of the driveway (wish we could post photos). From the center of the plant they spread out about 12 inches give or take a few. They flowered profusely putting on quite a show. Though I tried the flowers I didn't make any herbal remedies, but I will be making tinctures with this years plants. I sure enjoyed the reactions I got talking visitors into popping one in their mouth, I new I had them once they said "what's that?"
