The seeds did not grow any more than planted in indoor and most dyed. Planted indoor with temperature warm. Will not order again.

Owner Response: Hi Brett, Thank you for taking time to leave a review. We recommend starting these seeds outdoors (they do not transplant well) before your average last frost or in your area they should be sown on the soil surface fall for best results. We hope you will try this beautiful variety again.

Beautiful blooms

I planted these last fall, unsure if I would see them come up in the spring. It's mid-June and I saw my first flower today! I have 3-4 large plants now with lots of blooms on them. Make sure to thin them when they are small so the plants you keep can get nice and big.
