Too bad this is an annual for me... Crying I've tried to grow it from seed twice and nothing ever germinates. I can't grow anything from seed!

This one may very well be an interspecific hybrid, and as such never sets fertile seed. So don't feel badly . . .

Here in California it is sold as an annual for large scale bedding.

I saw guaranitica being grown in containers in Fukui Japan when I was there in 2009. The hummingbirds love my plant and do aerial dogfight battles for nectar access.
