Dainty erect pale lavender flowers become droopy shiny black seeds by summer. Birds do eat & spread them around. If become weedy u can spray over them with weak glyphosate spray – Ive trialled it once with success but can’t say it wud be safe more than once a season – trial yourself carefully as reqd……..

$12 PB3 planter bags of dividable 4-6 sprouts……
