Other info: I grew Purple Majesty in summer 2003. I cut the bloom stalks and it kept blooming. I have heard however that many of the seeds harvested from these plants will be green instead of purple based on its hybrid nature. That's why I'm offering a large amount of seeds for the price in hopes that you will get at least 1/2 purple plants. I purchased two expensive plants, so that's all that's in the photo. I'm sure they look much better in groups. Also I didn't get the photo right away so this is when the bloom stalks were beginning to brown.
