No apologies necessary.  I posted that before reading all my mail otherwise
I would have realized how dumb it was.  The reason it doesn't set seed,
which I realized after I posted it is because: 

1.  It doesn't bloom very well for me.

2.  I pick the blossoms off.

That might be why it doesn't spread for me.  DUH! :-)
