Self-seeding is it's superpower
by Aaron Y.
I planted this in zone 5b last year (2020) for the purpose of making tea. Well, I never made the tea but I enjoyed the flowers. However, I decided to write a review because I am amazed at how well it self seeded. I have one plant in the ground about to flower and two pots that are carpeted with new plants. I plan on getting a lot of tea this year
