Yet no one seems to mention them, I must read through hundreds of blog posts in a week, and don't recall one post about them. Is this because they are 'out of fashion', too common or gaudy - I don't know why, but surely they are good value for money in containers flowering all summer long, with so many varieties to choose from. They are raised easily from cuttings and can be trained as standards.
