Excellent and easy garden plants, with a variety of colours and forms to suit any open situation, although as they can be quite prolific, they will grow in part shade also. Cultivated forms will not always come true from seed, so watch out for seedlings arising near your original plant. With many differing species and forms available, this is matched by the plethora of common names, granny's bonnets, lion's herb, columbine, dove plant, cluckies, jack-in-trousers....  to name a few.
