What are the pros? ground cover;heat resistant
What are the cons? small seedlings
I thought these sounded interesting so I started them inside in February (zone 6a). They were slow to start indoors and I thought they were the tiniest little seedlings ever- I felt sure I was doing something wrong. When they got their mature leaves they were still small, but I moved them outside a few weeks after last frost. I really thought they wouldn't do much- they were so small and barely had roots when I put them in the ground. It took a while for them to mature (and slugs loved them) but sometime around July they started to take off. It's mid august and after the rest of the garden is dying, these are great groundcover that have cute button flowers on them. They spread out and have gobbled up all the space I allotted for them and more. The hotter it gets, the happier they seem. I've already ripped up other annuals to replace with fall plantings and these will go nicely with those as well. I'm really pleased with them.
