I have been trying to grow this one out of seeds...and failed.
This plant is really beautiful and the pictures are amazing.
Thank you Bonitin

Thanks Clusiana!
I also love this plant, but it proves to be hard to please unfortunately!
I've never tried it from seed, but bought it twice as a young plant, it never came back the following year, whenever I see it for sale again I want to try again, the plant is so enchanting I cannot not resist! Rolling my eyes.

Many of the commercial packets do not contain fresh seeds.
It is best to save seeds from a plant in your own garden.
I am getting good germination in a winter south window.
