I got seeds from poisondartfrog in the Nov. 2017 seed trade and planted them March 1, 2018. Most seeds sprouted so I had about 10 to share and kept 2. It's late July and the plants are 2 feet tall and just started flowering. She noted hers had a light yellow edge but the 1st three flowers have been true double, solid white flowers with a soft sweet fragrance. I love them, Thanks Alana!
