The little plant that could, this is always my latest flowering plant, producing flowers for weeks into the late fall after everything else has given up for the year.

The seeds are tiny and are best to sow by mixing with a great deal of sand - you just grab a handful of sand and shake it out on the surface of the soil.

Ordered from Hirts 8/15/2020, arrived 8/20/2020. Needs to have a few days toughening up before I plant it.

It sunburned pretty badly and is now on the mend - planted 9/16/2020. Almost lost this one.

4/13/2021 The plant is healthy and growing extremely well
