detailed seed-starting info below

Small-leaved, small-flowered groundcover for shady areas. Charming when viewed up close. I like how it pokes its head out of unexpected places, often after clambering through taller-growing neighbors.

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