I think this overflow pot needs some Begonias and Citronella

Oh no...not at all!!! I actually wish it would be a little more vigorous!!!

The foliage is ground cover, and the flowers grow to 12 inches at the most! Since it bloomed this year during our very hot and dry spell...it did noticeably go to seed, so I purposefully spread the seed about. See how that turns out!LOL

Most say they are hard z 4 to 8, but there is one that is z2-7...Stachys macrantha (aka S. grandiflora), "Robusta" being a very hardy variety apparently. I do not remember what mine is!
