Re: polka dot

GREAT....thanks Noreen. I thought about doing that. And what I read on this plant said that they can be grown outside in shade/partial shade, to keep them clipped or they get too tall and leggy and that they were very easy to propagate. So I will try sticking them in some dirt. Thanks for your help.

JR, I'm playing catch-up here with email, so not sure if this has been
answered. I have this plant in my yard. It is EXTREMELY easy to propagate
by cuttings. Don't put them in water though...just stick them in the ground.
No need to put in a pot, etc. Just cut off a bunch in stick it in the
ground...instant plant. They grow like crazy. Chop it often to make it stay
bushy, since it has a tendency (here at least) to get leggy and tall. Makes
a great filler.
