Sowing, Seeds, Planting May be grown as a perennial plant in warmer climates but in the UK is it best treated as an annual since it will not tolerate frost and often becomes leggy in its later years. Looks effective planted in summer containers where its colour and scent can be enjoyed at close quarters on a patio or terrace. Caution: May be harmful to humans or animals if ingested, wash hands after handling.
Care Tips Pinching plants to encourage blooming, and deadhead to entice a continuous bloom.
