They are weeds here,
but I love them...
I let them grow in the early spring...
They do grow in the sun and shade, they are not
picky here..
I love to let them grow where I have spring bulbs..
They grow under them and look so cute..

But they do and will get a bit tall and eventually gradually, so, when that starts, I just
pull them up.. but enough seeds drop and they will restart some and then reflower come spring the next year...

They do prefer a moister soil and they do re~seed prolifically...... here, once you have them, you don't get rid of them... they pull out easy but reseed at a rampid rate..

Mine I bought today was only green. I thought they are what Holly Hobbie's "Blue Girl" print is holding? But this thing I bought is not in bloom and is much smaller than taller (daisy like size) flowers like I want to see grow. Maybe they will grow taller? When do they bloom? Im in NC. Arent they blue? Can they be grown in a pot?

Yes they can, but probably would do better if you water...
Not water logged, but they do like a moist soil..
*I have some growing in a pot, that haven't been watered, and they are still growing, not well,
but still grow..*
Mine are wild weeds, never planted by me, but
I do let them go...

Do you only have pot/container as an option to grow????
