Beautiful flowers

I ordered these seeds years ago! Being that I live in Florida,they're not zoned for this type of flower.but I did an experiment with the seeds,I kept feeding it ice cubes! They loved it and I was able to grow them! Beautifully!!!I've tried other seeds,they're not doing anything.!

Didn't survive Zone 9 Central Florida conditions (even with partial shade; died in summer)

Kudos to you, with the ice cubes; and congratulations, but my results with the Honesty Money Plant were not as successful here on the Gulf Coast of Florida, even in partial shade (perhaps our garden is "south-er" Florida than yours). These just couldn't survive our Zone 9, Central Florida HEAT, fungi, and root knot nematodes once the more "tropical" steamy weather of our summer rainy season got into full swing. (Not Botanical Interests fault: the seeds had excellent germination, and the plants grew well during the cool spring...they just couldn't handle the heat, fungus, nematodes, and torrential rains of our central Florida summer.
