FloSilver Fairy, maybe I leave it too late before I look for the seeds and it would be overwealmed by other stuff if it seeded ehere it is.

Thanks Verdun, I'll give it a try. griffithii was very easy to propagate, lovely rooted cuttings by the end of summer. Dead sticks by spring.

FloSilverFairy, have you ever managed to propagate it? I've failed to get seed, early and late cuttings Have all died. Any suggestions?

Might be artjak. I've heard all that genus referred to as plumbago. This one is shrubby. It sometimes dies back in a hard winter but isn't herbaceous like C. plumbaginoides. I also had C. griffithii , also shrubby but smaller, that couldn't do the winters.
