I like these - I know they aren't hardy, but they'd look good in a pot, wouldn't they!

I had mine in a pot lasted all through the winters, its only when I accidently emptied the pot forgeting I had them in there that I lost them.

who said not hardy Spritz???? this variety is much hardier than others... i have been growing these outside, no protection for about 6 years and never had a problem... and i also have some seed if you are interested... they are easy, not sure how long until they reach flowering size from seed though,,, i sowed some myself a few weeks ago germination rate is really high, but they seem to be very slow growing since they came up....
