We were given an annual 'geranium' on Sat. but it is still indoors as we don't want the humans to get wet.

Torenias are so cute, and I love that they come in colors that Impatiens don't for more variety in the shade. Have you tried the yellow one with a black/brown throat? Saw that in a Park seed catalog, sure would be nice to have some reliable yellow flowers for the shade.

I ordered my plants from Romence Gardens. Great packing and plants took off right away.
I didnt notice a yellow.
I just dont do seeds except for direct sow,zinnias,poppies,larkspur.
I caved in and started some zinnias ans collencias and MG's but all were a dismal failure.
