This is great for filling in the gaps till other plants are bigger and helps keeps the cats off.

I especially remember snowball tree, crab apple & lilac. Living in a cottage garden there was always these love in a mist & phlox too.

Yep! Used to make them 'roar' by pressing the blossoms! Still do when no-one's looking!!

We've had these self seeding for years. Complete no show this year though! It's a shame, because as you point out, they're great for filling in early gaps.
