    I live in Vancouver Bc and purchase two of these plants in early summer. They were mixed in with annual bedding plants but with no labels. they have done very well in a large planter box in partial sun and are now about 8" high x 12" across. Despite being small they have a rather 'shrubby' appearance with stiff ascending branches, waxy dark-green leaves and lots of flowers even in mid-November.
    I would love to know what they are and whether there is a chance of keeping them for next year. If so how? In a protected corner outdoors, dormant in a cold frost-free garage, in a bright cool room indoors or by rooting cuttings? IMG_6958.jpg
