I sowed seeds of these which I received from a trade; they were from 2007 and I was so surprised that they germinated Hurray! Can't wait to add them to my butterfly garden. Their description sounds lovely.

Yes, they can. I've never done it before, but found a link if you need how to do it. http://www.ecke.com/annuals/te...

thank you for the link, marilyn.

i visit this site infrequently, but i do grow and like agastache. i love salvias, too, but because they have a tendency to "walk" and are too broad for my tiny garden i stay away from salvias.

my passion is for japanese maples, tree peonies, and ensatas. however, they do not flourish in my current area. so, i am trying my hand at bearded irises and succulents.😃

tropicals such as frangipani, cordyline fruticosa, anthuriums, hibiscus rosa senensis also fight for my small spaces. Hilarious!

Daphne,

I don't have a lot of space either, so I plant salvias in containers.
