Grey-green leaves and numerous small, scented, pink, mauve, white and purple flowers with a green marked centre which are very popular with various pollinators.
Being very easy to grow, it's a great plant for children to try.
It's a lovely plant for tubs or on the edge of flowerbeds where it will tumble over paths.
You won't find it mentioned by a lot of celebrity gardeners as it's not "in fashion" at the moment but I've been growing it for as long as I can remember and love the way it self-seeds and pops up in unexpected places.
Perfect for sowing every few weeks for flowers all summer. Available in 2 pack sizes, 1g or money-saving 5g.
