This is a good plant for double planting. It is a perennial which flowers until nearly frost, by which time it produces masses of black seeds about 4mm and oval. These can self seed itself the following late spring. The storage tap root dies down with the frost and nothing is seen of it until early july when it spring up quickly. Every year it gets larger growth. It is easily grown from seed and flowers earlier for a long time.
