Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary.
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
Take flowers that start blooming early and keep on until late fall, then add a mounding/trailing habit and unique color blooms. The result is a series that fills hanging baskets and containers with masses of color, they are also wonderful as a groundcover in shady areas.
