Just a single seedling resulted from my germination attempt, and the plant was allowed to grow on in the cushy environment of our vegetable garden all year - resulting in the upright, large-leaved plant pictured here. It is probably too tender to survive Pennsylvania winters, but we'll try. The photo was taken in late October, after the first killing frosts, and it hasn't blinked yet. Maybe a good helping of mulch will bring it through the winter...
Post-scriptum: it didn't...

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