Oh yes, very much so.
Ten years ago, when I moved into my current home, there was very little in the front garden ...... just grass and a narrow border containing two clematis and an assortment of tulips. To ensure there was a range of colour that summer I sowed a packet of mixed annuals. It contained some forget-me-not seed; every year since they have flowered their hearts out and gone to seed. They do better than any weeds now, and have moved into the back garden too. The other annuals from the same packet gradually dwindled away within two or three years, the competition from the forget-me-nots proved to be too great.
Earlier this month my daughter said she would like to grow them in her new garden too, so thinnings have been replanted there this year.
