Received these seeds from the U.K. this summer, so I went ahead and grew a few. They came up great and are sturdier, not as leggy as my Cerinthe major purpurescens. I'm hoping I get a few seeds, although I did start them late. I'm also trying "Yellow Gem," although the flowers came in pink, not yellow at all.
