I dont know how many of you grow this plant I just started last season and the hummers hardly touched it last season, but this season is a different ballgame as I see them on it daily which pleases me to no end.

No one has commented so just maybe none of you are aware of what this plant looks like. As I mentioned above it was little used last season but much used this season.

Yes at least it is an annual for me, but you just might be able to get it thru with protection.

Take cuttings now, they root easily, keep them frost-free in winter, you will have strong, healthy plants in bud to plant out in late May.early June. The roots/stolons are hardy, but new growth will flower much later.
