I love this picture! I have tried to grow Love in a Mist but never had any luck. Thank you for the image! Up close like this I think it could be an inspiration for a sci-fi movie. A tentacled creature with a beautiful skirt.

Thanks, Jennifer! I appreciate the comment and agree about it looking like a creature.

We are in the same zone so I'm not sure why it won't grow for you. These just pop up where ever they like here. My soil has not been amended or anything and if I let it go to seed, I always get more the next year. The only thing I do have is regular cypress mulch on top of my flower beds.
May all your weeds be wildflowers. ~Author Unknown
