Yep, in the gutters, guess the birds or wind takes it up there.  Would help 
if I cleaned the gutters out more, then there would not be such a problem.  
Jewel of Opar and the Kalanchoes grow there too.  

This is the first year that the Summer Poinsettia has been such a nuisance.  
Not sure why.  Ruellia really isn't that bad.  It stays much more contained

I like it because it is evergreen here and mostly blooms through the winter 
too.  Great border planting.  Tall ones are great for back of borders.
