Easy to start from seed; dies back in winter; regrows each spring. Carefree plant.

Thanks.
The original plant came from my old plant friend. He's getting forgetful so when I asked him the name his face went blank for a moment and then he said, "It's pretty". Rolling on the floor laughing

I save seeds every year and had over 90% germination the one time I kept track.

This is the second time recently in the Site Banners forum that I have seen reference to someone other than Sue selecting the banner. Isn't @ Calif_Sue the moderator of this forum? I sure hope nothing has happened to her!

Thank you Trish. I got worried about her.
