wait and see!

It takes 2 years to get blossoms from this plant started from seed. To those of you who reviewed it and said they only got grasses the first year....congratulations you have them started!

Very beautiful

I purchased a pound of seeds and tossed them on part of a hillside. The first year was just the green leaves. The second year I had several flowers and the third year was a breath-taking view of purple. I plan to purchase more seeds late winter and toss them on the upper side of the hill.

Beautiful Bright Blooms

This is a beautiful plant. I have had a bit of difficulty growing it from seed by direct sowing. I only got one plant out of six seeds sown last year. It could be my error or poor soil. I am very pleased with the plant I did get. It is pushing five feet tall with a few beautiful bright purple/pink blooms and many more to come. I saw my first butterfly on it. Hope to get more plants to grow.
