Gorgeous Colors!

5 out of 5 stars Jul 6, 2020
I love the colors of these flowers! The artwork on the seed pack although very beautiful, doesn't do it justice! Seeds took a little while to germinate and get going but once the soil warmed, the plants established well. I love the leaf structure and tiny tendrils. Hoping they will start to cascade over my tiered planter soon. Right now still growing up.

Only 6 seeds between two packages sprouted

I was so excited to order these flowers. I bought 3 packages and only planted two. Of the two 5 seeds sprouted from one package and only 1 seed from second package. I followed the directions and soaked in water before planting, but it was a sad return on the investment.

We happily guarantee our seed and a customer service representative will contact you soon with assistance.
