Not a whole lot of information out there on this one. Our seed sprouted well, so hopefully I'll be able to add my own impressions here over the next few years. So far, most seedlings survived their first winter, and developed strong taproots in their first year. Plants develop sprawling stems with pink flowers near the ends. The long tubular sections of the flowers are sticky-hairy. Overall,not a stunner, but I'll try to keep my one or two surviving plants around to see how they develop.
|Seed ripens||late June|
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list
