Hi all,

I have no experience growing P. ternata or P. pedatisecta, but was warned
about P. ternata by Tony Avent, so have avoided it.  The only one I grow is
P. tripartita and it self sows, but the seedlings sprout right under the
parent and are not hard to remove if no more are desired, so it has not
become a problem.

Four-o'clock (Mirabilis jalapa) could be considered a geophyte and self sows
like mad.  It also turns out to be root hardy here, something I did not
expect, so has some invasive potential in this climate.  If we agree that it
is a geophyte I would be glad to post photos of this plant to the wiki.
