I don't grow these, but my mother does.  She hasn't purchased any new
plants or seeds in years( at least eight) because they self-sow so
profusely.  A very nice property, since the 75 and 78 year old gardeners
at that house really should start cutting back on their "hard labor,"
like digging, tilling, etc.

Mom also has some petunias (variety unknown) that have done the same
thing for about three years.
