Sanvitalia procumbens is a cheerful Mexican annual, with flowers like miniature zinnias. It’s a perfect choice for growing in hanging baskets and containers, as its soft hair stems soon sprawl and become prostrate, forming a solid carpet of bright foliage, studded with the flowers all summer. It’s also ideal as edging for sunny beds and paths.
