Other info: Plants will bloom the first year from seed started early. Plants act as perennial but may be short lived. They self sow, but minimally. So after two years of bloom, you may want to save seeds for future planting. - - 2015 - finally got a couple plants put in the ground to test and see what they are really like. - A bit disappointed that there was little doubling of the flowers. - Mostly single flowers; though I do like the coloring very well.
