Many blooms for such a short plant.

These had a very good germination rate and transplanted into the garden well. The plants were quite stocky and were covered with blooms of beautiful colors. Towards the end of the season they started to look a little tired but that is part of gardening. I think they wore themselves out blooming. They gave a lot of color for such little effort on my part. I will be planting them again this year.

I love Pinetree Seeds!

I started the balsam flowers in my little greenhouse, then set them in my garden to attract pollinators. What success! My honey bees and bumbles loved them! Got lots of compliments from my friends, too. A lovely old fashioned flower.
