detailed seed-starting info below

Small species from China whose flowers are yellow marked with reddish-brown. Deeply lobed leaves. Goes dormant when hot weather arrives. I grew seedlings a few years in a row; getting them to germinate was easy enough, but very few survived in the garden. A couple are still living in our nursery area, where they put up just a small set of leaves. I'm still hoping that they'll come into their own one of these years.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
