detailed seed-starting info below

Four-petaled flowers in various pastel shades, with frilly, carrot-like leaves. The one year we grew them, they never reached much of an impact, and were nearly impossible to favorably photograph. They got good growing conditions, not sure what we did wrong.

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