Pretty flower

by

I bought these by accident in a pot this year. Have been looking for these seeds for awhile. These flowers bloomed all summer and are still blooming with the colder weather of NH. Glad you have these.

Low germ rate for me

I direct sowed these in Central FL and never saw a seedling. :( I was really looking forward to them.
