detailed seed-starting info below

Bears a profusion of small violet-purple Johnny-jump-up type flowers. One of ours bloomed in mid-May, from seeds sown indoors in March – as shown in the photo at right. The others followed within a few weeks, so that the patches in the garden had a nice display from mid-June ontward.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
