This is one of the most charming plants I've ever had. I love the delicate look of it, with its tiny, needle-like leaves, which are fragrant when crushed. The flowers look like tiny wild roses to me. This variety has blooms that begin white. As they age, they turn pink and then finally they turn rose. It takes almost a year for the seed pods to form and ripen. Inside are hundreds of miniscule seeds, which will sprout if you plant them when they're fresh.
