Wintersown on 2/1/08, 2/27/08 and 3/18/08. All sprouted on 4/8/08. Blooms the first year from seed if wintersown. Doesn’t overwinter well so I sow these every year.

    Beautiful, Urbandog. I got some seeds of this on an auction site earlier this fall. Will definitely give these a go in my wintersowing experiment.
