    I started my plants from seeds I got in a seed swap here in Jan. 2017 labeled 'Brownies'. I planted them Feb. 1, '17 and they grew well. This spring I planted them in pots and the new leaves for 2018 were very brown on some while other plants are a bright chartreuse green. Both are pretty with the large 3" to 4" leaves. I don't understand why some plants are different colors, but it's ok as they are all healthy and nice. I will see if their flower color is the same.
