gardening info- no pot needed

One of my favourite wildflowers is Ivy leaf Toadflax,it was originally an introduction from Italy via the Chelsea Botanical Gardens.What I like about it is the way it grows and thrives on old garden walls.Before fertilization each flower pushes itself out into the light and sun standing erect,but when the seeds are mature,it bends downwards,buries the capsule in the dark crannies between the stones on which it grows
