Brilliant flower colours and a compact, trailing habit, more manageable in a hanging basket than some trailing types. Stems will trail to some 60cm (2'). When you plant up your hanging baskets with your old favourites, scatter a few seeds beneath the plants around the edge and they will grow up and trail to give a colour boost later in the summer when other plants start to look tired. Flowers June-September. HA - Hardy annual. Easy to grow plants that will provide a blaze of colour in tubs and baskets. Hanging Basket variety. Note: Flowers and leaves are edible and give a peppery flavour to salads.
