Thank you Kyla.
And thank you Donald for your most informative run down on the plants. I had always hesitated buying any volume of this seed b/c I was doubtful they would survive the conditions you describe. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about as we have much the same conditions and so often I have been disappointed to find things don't live up to their touted reputation. With age comes wisdom (or hopefully so
) and in this at least I have learned to be skeptical unless I can ask someone who *really* knows. So now I will be delighted to sow seed willy nilly!
This is great news as the height of the bloom stalk will stand tall above the less desirable growth out there in my wild areas.
The ones I have that I took the photos of are indeed up under the oaks but I also see some as yet not blooming that are farther out in the sun & a drier area. This is the second year for those seeds. I do recall seeing the first year ferny rosette last year. Thank goodness I did not pull them up as the bad kind of weeds.
There is not much I pull up anyway with the exception of Virginia Creeper & Smilax.
