I like the way they self-seed, they're on like a long coiled spring and then they open and drop off. I've taken some off for friends; they're very sticky and apparently this is so they can cling onto insects and pets and get distributed all over the place. Isn't nature wonderful?

thanks paul sorry to hear yours didn't do so well,,, that's right Sheilar i watched a wildlife program a few years ago, apparently ants love that sticky stuff and they take it to their nest to eat and the seed is left so the seed is left .. nature is great :-))
