It is an annual, spreads like crazy, almost as bad as forget me nots. The first photo shows a healthy plant in a prime location. I have lots that are just tiny like your little finger one flower on them. BUT the hummers love them. Just showed up about 4 years ago.

Remi, never tried from seeds as they spread quite vigorous from roots. Remind me in the spring and you are quite welcome to have some. They like moist shady areas so should do fine in a boggy spot. Plant is poisonous (like many others) and will fill in an area fairly quickly. I weed a few out each year so I do not get overrun.

Betty,

Thank you. I'll definitely visit you for a little patch of your umbrlla plant in the spring. I'll trade you for a patch of "wanda" my little purple primula! Thanks again.
