Thank you Hywel, thats good to know, and its got a compact tidy clump form.

I've got one in a hanging basket and the runners hang down like a curtain and the flowers look very pretty on the hanging runners

Thats a good idea, Hywel, but mine has no runners, just a nice compact clump

Mine didn't have runners at first. They only starter growing when I put it in a hanging basket.
