From a good number of seeds, I raised just one seedling. Stayed small forever, and I finally just planted it out in a protected area near out patio. Mostly forgot about it, although up close the patterned leaves were neat. Then late August, I suddenly noticed the flower. Unfortunately, something had been eating on it, but I still took a photo - I'm unlikely to go through the process of raising it from seed again, so this was my last chance...
Unless, of course, I buy the plants already established – which is what I did shortly after arriving in Houston, to spruce up the front yard. Full sun, which it didn't care for – but I managed to take a pic (above right) before it got all wilty.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: foundation border
