Purple and White varieties.
Purple started outdoor in soil spring of 2019, then transplanted in front garden towards mid-late summer. Will update plant status here next spring.
White variety started indoors in coco, January 2020 from OSC seeds, and is currently growing in a humidity dome under T5 lights. I plan on moving it to my front garden with the purple variety.
