I've grown this from seed several times, but failed to get to flowering plants in the first attempts. Finally, some seedlings survived both summer and winter, and I have one or two flowering plants this year. I like them OK - the long willowy leaves, which are paired along the stem, alternate directions for a cell tower-like effect; spikes of silvery white flowers show their stuff in July.
