detailed seed-starting info below

White button flowers, shiny foliage, spreader. Ours started flowering as seedlings under shoplights, but I kind of lost track of them after I planted them - they're in our very busy, rough-and-tumble driveway bed, where they never reach the lushly blooming mound form so proudly shown in other pictures of this plant. Instead, they pop up with some white flowers out of the jumble surrounding them. Perhaps I'll rescue them sometime...

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
