Nice plant for my porch planters

Easy to shop on the site and delivery was great! The seeds were viable and I have nice plants in my planters for the summer - once in a great while these will come up again in the spring so I will be anxious to see if these do.

Easy to grow

I wanted some winter silver/white plants to brighten up our dark winters. Seeds germinated well and plants have done well. Still rather small plants, but doing well their first year.
