Native to eastern Siberia. Dark green foliage, reaches a shrubby stature in its season of growth.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

It depends on how quickly they are expected to sprout, and how quickly they grow once they do. Most baggies, I look at about 5 days after I start them, and then every two or three days thereafter - less frequently after a week or two have passed without germination.
- Seed from '09 trade. Baggy 70F (100%G, 8-11d)
