detailed seed-starting info below

Fragrant wine-red flowers on well-branched plants. We grow this as an annual. In our first attempt, blooms arrived by early June; nice, even though the plants were still small. The following year flowers came later, but arrived in greater numbers, on larger plants. Quite nice – I wish it would self-seed.
