Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have not had luck with this plant. I followed the directions on the seed packet and sprouts grew to about one inch tall then died. Hoping for better luck when the weather cools again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So lovely! I planted these two years ago and was very, very pleased. They are stunning. I didn't have to do anything special (I watered in the a.m. and misted at late afternoon/early evening); I planted them and they grew. Everyone who saw them commented on them, and a couple of friends have asked what these plants are called and where they can get them. Of course, I made referrals! I've ordered some more this spring and am looking forward to planting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No luck with these I purchased these seeds and started indoors with my grow lights and heat mats and still had no luck. A few sprang up but were so lanky that they never amounted to anything. I really loved these and was disappointed.
