If you are anything like me, you spend what might be deemed as a considerable amount of time admiring and researching plants. After all, that’s what brought us together here at ATP. The All-America Selections have been made for 2013 and include some wonderful plants to consider for the year.

Seeds are fertile, but will not necessarily grow true to the mother plant. Seeds should be removed from the pod and slightly scratched before sowing. I tried planting the whole pod and nothing ever grew from them, but when I removed them from the pod and lightly scarified them, I had nearly 100% germination. But some of the resulting plants had very pretty pink flowers instead of red. And I had none of the pink variety growing in my garden.
