I sowed these seeds late summer/early fall in my kohlrabi and romanesco bed as a companion plant. Very pretty, and there were little-to-none of the pests that usually plague brassicas.

The seed packet was a year old so I didn't have high hopes. I started these indoors in early May. To my surprise they took off beautifully. In early June I planted them outside and the plant continue to grow and flower. I was a little disappointed to see that there are only orange flowers on this plant. I don't know if it's because the seeds were a year old. The reason I bought this plant was because of the peach colored blooms.

Owner Response: Hi Heather, Thanks for taking the time to share your review. It is possible the peach flowering seeds expired more quickly that they orange blooming seeds you are experiencing. Storing seeds in a cool, dry place will help them last as long as possible. Happy gardening!
