Thanks for bringing this flower to our attention.
If it is an annual, we should be able to grow it here too.

I have them in my garden thanks to you sharing your seeds with me a few years back...they come back every year and last through the fall and our mild winters.

People garden for different reasons and sometimes I think more of them garden for the beauty of it, though beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. Wildflowers aren't always the biggest brightest bloom in the garden, we both know that. Smiling
