I have some pink ones to. The seed are easy to collect. When the little pods dry just pop them open and there are the seed. They are black and I have good germation with mine. I dropped several in a pot and forgot what they were until they were around 4" tall and I recognized the leaves on them. I have the purple ones in several different places. I haven't tried the pink yet. I'll collect some of them this fall. They also transplant easy.

do they spread like a carpet or do they just pop up in really random spots like Cosmos?
