detailed seed-starting info below

Can't find much info on this one. The HPS/MAG seed listing says it has a sweet perfume at night. The seed came from a Philadelphia-area garden, so it is hardy to at least zone 7. I hope it will survive zone 6.

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