That pretty, Spritz - what soil/conditions does it like?

I like this variety. Is it taller, looks taller, than those I'm used to.

No, not particularly, Gt, it grows up to about 8" max. I suppose?

Gee, they don't seem to mind what kind of soil as long as it's not damp. Dry-ish seems to suit them. I have two on a drystone wall in the sun all day and another on the other side of the garden facing east - so only sun for the mornings.

I grew a whole lot from seed one year, they germinated very easily. I had so many I was giving them away (before GOY existed!!!)
