    Beautiful & hardy flower

    The fact that any of my seedlings survived to be planted with the hectic spring we had is a testament to their hardiness. One of the two that got planted in late summer was accidentally pulled up, but the other, planted in a fairly bare and neglected part of the garden proceeded to bloom all through the hot, dry September. The flower is just as pretty as the photos.

    While it is too soon for them to be in the ground, I had very high germination rate and they are all showing vigorous growth. Very optimistic!
